CLEVELAND - Police announced that an arrest has been made in the November 2014 case where five were murdered in their home.

Police will not confirm the name or age of the suspect, but have confirmed he is an adult male with a criminal history.

They cannot indefinitely say that he was the person who shot the victims and they are continuing to search for other suspects as the investigation continues. The relationship between the family and the suspect is also unknown.

Back in November, Sherita Johnson, her unborn baby, Sherita’s 19-year-old son, Ja’rio Taylor, his friend, 17-year-old Shaylona Williams, and the mother’s boyfriend, 60-year-old Lemon Bryant were all killed.

Police said a masked man shot and killed them all at a home near East 92nd Street and Wade Park Avenue.  In addition to their five deaths, Johnson’s 9-year old daughter was also shot, but she survived.

As of a vigil held last Sunday, there were no arrests made in the case.
