Authorities in Ohio say 24-year-old Tevin Biles-Thomas was arrested in Georgia last week after being indicted on murder, manslaughter and other charges in a New Year’s Eve party shooting.
Police in Cleveland say the shooting happened just before the end of 2018 when a group of men arrived uninvited to a party.
Three men were killed when gunfire broke out during a fight and two others were wounded.
Biles-Thomas is scheduled for arraignment in Cleveland on Sept. 13. No attorney is listed for him in court records.
