U.S. Marshals announced Friday they had arrested two people accused in two separate homicides in Cleveland and Akron, respectively.
The first suspect, 25-year-old Tyreid Manningham, was taken into custody on the 900 block of East 224th St. in Euclid. Manningham is accused in a shooting that left one person dead and six others injured on Cleveland's east side last July.
According to authorities, local rapper Q Money was filming a video outside the Dog Pound Lounge at St. Clair Ave. and East 186th St. on July 25 when a fight broke out following filming. After someone tried to break up the fight, multiple shots were fired, and 27-year-old Cortez Ruffin was fatally wounded. Two others ended up in critical condition, but later recovered.
A warrant for Manningham's arrest was issued only Thursday. So far, he is the only one to be arrested in the case.
The second suspect is 23-year-old Jovonta Moore, who was arrested on the 900 block of Storer Ave. in Akron. Moore is accused of fatally shooting 22-year-old Kaleen Primm multiple times this past Sunday on East Mapledale Ave.
U.S. Marshal Pete Elliot issued the following statement:
"All across northern Ohio members of this task force work day in and day out to keep the streets safe from dangerous fugitive like these two. Two guns are also now off the streets and out of the hands of criminals because of the hard work and dedication of these teams."
