Authorities search for Ravenna shooting suspect

Posted: Updated:
RAVENNA, Ohio -

A community is in shock after a shooting left one man dead and sent a pregnant woman to the hospital. 

Authorities are now searching for the suspect they call armed and "extremely dangerous."

Portage County Sheriff David Doak says when officers arrived at the scene on Henderson Road, around 2:30 p.m. Wednesday afternoon; they found a 33-year-old man dead in the driveway.

They also found a woman, who neighbors say, was five or six months pregnant shot several times and the window to a car riddled with bullet holes.

Doak says the suspect is 25-year-old David Darnell Calhoun, Jr. 

"We suspect he was either picked up or had a car in the immediate area and left in the vehicle," said Doak.

The sheriff's department isn't saying what may have led up to the shooting, but neighbors say it may have been a spillover from a previous argument.

"They was two good dudes. They could have been best friends for real. I mean they was two of the strongest young men in our community. They were very, very bright," said Joel "Moe" Smith of Ravenna.

One man says he grew up with the families of both the victims and suspect.

He calls the suspect's family a "pillar" in the community.

"Generally, a law abiding family and this is unusual for the Calhoun family, anyone in that family," said William Tarver of Ravenna.

The sheriff says Calhoun was on parole. It's not clear why, but an online search of his record shows charges for possession of cocaine and driving under suspension.

Police and neighbors agree the crime is unusual for the quiet town.

"Everybody watches television and they think, I tell them all the time the actors on TV get to go home after the credits are rolled up. Death is for real out here in the streets," said Tarver.  

The sheriff's department has not released the names of the victims.
