Marion County Wanted Man Detained
The manhunt is over.
A man wanted for murder in Marion County remains in police custody this morning, after shooting and killing one man and leaving another fighting for his life.
43-year-old Richard Drake was found and arrested around the Orange Springs area.
But early Tuesday the swat team thought they had him cornered when they swarmed a home in Summerfield, searching for him.
The home was empty.
23-year-old David Walsh was shot to death inside a home just a couple of addresses down from Drake's.
And an unidentified 19-year-old was flown to Shands... fighting to stay alive after being shot six times.
Some neighbors believe this may have started as a drug deal.
But authorities did not yet announce a motive for the crime.
