|U.S. Marshals Task Force Convinces Shooting Suspect to Surrender|
Mansfield, Ohio – Earlier today, members of the U.S. Marshals Northern Ohio
Violent Fugitive Task Force and the Mansfield Division of Police arrested
Desiree Marshall, age 22, at a family member’s residence in Mansfield.
Marshall is charged with felonious assault by the Mansfield Police
Department. Marshall allegedly had a verbal altercation in which she fired
multiple shots striking a victim in the chest. The incident occurred outside
of the G-Spot Bar in Mansfield last Saturday night. Task Force Officers
began working the case this Tuesday and followed leads around the clock.
After feeling the pressure from the Task Force, Marshall contacted one of
the Task Force Officers who then convinced the fugitive that a life on the
run was not worth it and Marshall subsequently surrendered to the Task Force
today without incident.
U.S. Marshal Pete Elliott stated, “The persistence and tenacity of the officers on our Task Force should be credited for this safe and timely apprehension. When we close off all avenues of escape, the best option for anyone on the run is to self surrender and we are glad that Desiree Marshall made the right choice today.”
Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of a known fugitive is
encouraged to contact the U.S. Marshals Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task
Force at: 1-866-4-WANTED. Callers may remain anonymous.
