SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) - Springfield police have issued an arrest warrant for a man they say fatally stabbed a 29-year-old woman and injured two other people earlier this month.

Police on Wednesday identified 46-year-old Erick Buchanon as a suspect in the March 11 stabbings, including the death of Salina Merritt, a mother of three.

The warrant is for charges of murder, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, and other offenses.

The other victims were a man and another woman.

Sgt. John Delaney described Buchanon as “armed and dangerous” and said police think he is still in western Massachusetts.

Anyone who knows of the suspect’s whereabouts is asked to call police.
