Feagin was wanted in connection with the homicide of Khaalil Petty, 15, who was shot to death on Friday. Police say Petty was shot and killed at an apartment on King Street.

Feagin then fled the apartment on foot, according to authorities. Feagin had made threats to harm herself and was considered to be armed and dangerous.

While the search for Feagin has ended, police are still seeking further information about the incident.

"We are asking anyone who may have information concerning this case to contact Detective Terry Butler at 419-755-9791," Robertson said.
