CAMBRIDGE -- A man wanted in connection with a Tuesday morning triple shooting in Salisbury that left one woman dead was arrested in Cambridge, according to the Wicomico County Sheriff’s Office.

Wicomico County Sheriff Mike Lewis said Myles David Lyons, 19, of Salisbury, was found Tuesday afternoon in a home on the 900-block of Phillips Street in Cambridge. He said Lyons faces first-degree murder and attempted murder charges in Wicomico County.

According to the Wicomico County Sheriff’s Office, deputies responded at 3:30 a.m. to a home on Jersey Road in Salisbury for a reported shooting. Police said deputies found three people with gunshot wounds.

Police said Lakisha Jackson, 39, was shot in the face and chest and also was stabbed in the chest. Police said Lakisha Jackson was pronounced dead at Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury.

Police said a 17-year-old girl, who is eight months pregnant with Lyons child, was shot in the chest and stabbed in the face.

Lewis said he could not release the girl’s name as of Tuesday afternoon.

Police said a third person, Tyisha Jackson, 18, was shot twice in the back. Police said Tyisha Jackson and the girl were taken to PRMC and were in critical condition Tuesday afternoon.

According to police, Lyons was identified as the alleged shooter and he fled the scene in a stolen car.

Lewis said the investigators received a tip Lyons would be in Cambridge and police found the stolen car at Muir and Pine streets. Lewis said members of the Dorchester County Sheriff’s Office entered the Phillips Street home and arrested Lyons without incident.
