CLEVELAND (WJW) – The U.S. Marshals Service arrested a 16-year-old wanted by Cleveland police for aggravated vehicular homicide Thursday morning.
Members of the Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force arrested the 16-year-old boy near the 2900 block of Minnie Avenue, according to a press release from the U.S. Marshals Service.
According to the Cleveland Division of Police, officers found a stolen Kia on East 78th Street and Union Avenue on July 10 that crashed into a utility pole and “nearly split in two.” Another vehicle was also found at the scene with a 30-year-old man and 31-year-old woman inside.
According to police, the man was killed during the crash, and the woman suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
A gun was found at the scene, just outside the Kia, according to police.
“The juvenile involved in this incident was out at 3 a.m., driving in a stolen vehicle at a high rate of speed, which led to a senseless death,” U.S. Marshal Pete Elliott said. “We are committed to working with our partners to pursue and arrest those violent offenders causing reckless crimes in our community.”
