It was just before 10 a.m. when police were called to a home at 2501 Westside Drive, on Warsaw’s north end, on a report of multiple stabbings there. In the home, police found three victims, according to the Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Office.

One of the victims was pronounced dead at the scene, while two others were taken to hospitals. One remains hospitalized, with the other has been released.

They have not been identified.

Information about the suspect was gathered and a search ensued, the sheriff’s office said. Multiple agencies converged and a helicopter was used.

The Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Office said in a Facebook post they searched the area of Fox Farm Road and C.R. 150 West for Wooldridge. The post said residents should avoid “unnecessary travel” in that area.

Wooldridge was considered to be “armed and dangerous,” the post said.

Around noon, Wooldridge was located and taken into custody. She’s being held in the Kosciusko County Jail pending formal charges, the sheriff’s office said.

The sheriff’s office did not release information about the incident. It remains under what relationship the victims might have had to the suspect, and what triggered the violence.
