The prime suspect in two Dayton, Ohio, shootings that left four people dead has been taken into custody, police confirmed on Saturday.

Stephen Marlow, 39, was apprehended in Kansas by the Lawrence Police Department, Butler Township Police Chief John Porter said at a press conference. The suspect was captured around 10 p.m.

Porter said local authorities are making arrangements to extradite Marlow.

This puts an end to a multi-state search for Marlow, who was considered to be armed and dangerous. The Dayton area shooting on Friday included a teenage girl and her mother.

Eva and Clyde Knox were found dead in their home Friday morning. Sarah Anderson and her 15-year-old daughter Kayla were also discovered dead shortly after.

The suspect had fled the state in a white 2007 Ford Edge SUV bearing an Ohio license plate following the shootings.

Marlow was charged with four counts of aggravated murder on Friday.

On Saturday, prior to the apprehension, the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Ohio issued a federal arrest warrant on a charge of unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.
