Fostoria police said Mr. Dixson had ties to Cleveland as well as Perrysburg.

The shooting occurred at 1:30 p.m. on Bannister Street in the southwest section of Fostoria.

The hospital was not identified.

Police said Mr. Dixson fled the shooting scene in an older model green or gray-colored Dodge pickup truck.

Fostoria residents were urged to be watchful and to contact police if he was seen.

Police did not issue a lockdown for the city.
