Tevin Biles-Thomas, 24, of Cleveland, was arrested Thursday at Fort Stewart in Georgia in the Dec. 31 shooting at an Airbnb property, according to a joint statement from the Cleveland Division of Police and the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s Office.
The statement said an “uninvited group” entered the house and “an altercation ensued” with the invited guests that led to gunfire.
Delvante Johnson, 19, and Toshaun Banks, 21, were pronounced dead at the scene, and Devaughn Gibson, 23, was pronounced dead at a hospital.
Biles-Thomas is facing 15 charges, according to an indictment filed in Cuyahoga County Court.
