CLEVELAND — The Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force arrested a person Wednesday morning in connection with the shooting death of a woman who was found on Interstate 77 in Cleveland on Saturday.

The suspect, Deandra Chisholm, 26, was found hiding in a bedroom inside a home in the 3300 block of Meyer Avenue in the city's Clark—Fulton neighborhood, authorities said. The person was named as a suspect in the case shortly after authorities began investigating.

On March 20, authorities received a call regarding a woman who had been shot on the highway near Downtown. She was found on I-77 near the exit ramp by Woodland Avenue and East 30th Street. She had been shot several times. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

"A senseless act of violence such as this will not be tolerated in the city of Cleveland or anywhere in our communities in Northern Ohio. Our task force will continue to work together with our local partners to ensure that as soon as violent fugitives such as this are identified, they are arrested and brought to justice," U.S. Marshal Pete Elliott said.
