EUCLID, Ohio — EDITOR'S NOTE: The video above previously aired on 3News regarding another suspect that was arrested in the same Euclid homicide.
On the same day that he was named the Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force's "Fugitive of the Week," 18-year-old Leroy Billips was taken into custody.
Billips was wanted for his alleged involvement in the drive-by shooting that killed 13-year-old Marco Toler in Euclid in December 2021. Former Benedictine football star Duan Tra'Ron Jackson was previously indicted on murder charges related to the incident, which took place on Dec. 11, 2021, on Zeman Avenue near East 260th Street in Euclid during the afternoon.
According to a release, the media attention caused by Billips being named the "Fugitive of the Week" on Monday played a role in him being taken into custody. No additional details are available at this point.
