Ottawa police have arrested a suspect in the Friday night shooting that led to the death of a woman in the 700 block of South Hickory Street.

Police arrested Mark Aaron Sherman,  24, of 722 S. Hickory St., and charged him with second-degree homicide, a news release from Police Chief Dennis Butler. 

Sherman is being held without bond in the Franklin County Adult Detention Center, Butler said.

The victim, who appears to have died from a single gunshot wound, has been identified as  Skye Nicole Cadarette, 19, of the same residence on South Hickory Street, Butler said.

The exact cause of death will be determined after an autopsy is completed by the state medical examiner, he said.

Butler said members of the Ottawa Detective Unit continue to investigate the death, with assistance of the Kansas Bureau of Investigation. 

Law enforcement agencies were called to 722 S. Hickory St. after 8 p.m. Friday on a report of a drive-by shooting.

After additional investigation, police determined that earlier reports of drive-by shooting were unsubstantiated, Butler said in the release.

Butler said Friday when law enforcement arrived at the scene, they found a woman dead inside the house. He said it was unclear whether the victim was shot inside or outside the house.

"We're in the process of interviewing people who were in the house," he said at the time. He did not say how many people were in the house.
