LIMA — A Lima man was taken into custody Wednesday evening after fleeing from police, only to be subdued by a K-9 officer.

According to a spokesman for the Lima Police Department, officers were dispatched at approximately 10:50 p.m. to 326 S. Pierce St. and learned that Delee Mallory, 42, had previously been inside the residence and fired several shots from a gun, according to witnesses. No one was injured as a result of the shooting.

Mallory fled on foot prior to officers’ arrival, and officers used a K-9 officer to track suspect path through alleys and backyards to a parked motor home a short distance away.

The K-9 located Mallory hiding beneath the motor home. Officers gave the suspect multiple commands to show his hands and exit, but Mallory failed to comply with the officers. The K-9 was deployed to assist officers in apprehending the suspect.

Mallory was charged with suspicion of having weapons under disability, obstructing official business and resisting arrest.
