YAZOO CITY, Miss. -- U.S. Marshals arrested a man who was wanted for a double shooting that left one man dead in Lockland, Ohio last year. 

The scene of the shooting

Gerry Myles, 21, is accused of shooting Rick Julious and Tony Rembert Jr. on Wyoming Avenue in Lockland on March 22, 2017. Julious, 33, died at the hospital from multiple gunshot wounds, police previously said.

A Hamilton County grand jury indicted Myles last May on two counts of murder with specifications, four counts of felonious assault with specifications and having weapons while under disability.

A tip led authorities to believe Myles was hiding in Yazoo City, Mississippi, marshals said. They arrested him there without incident Monday.

Authorities are holding Myles at the Madison County, Mississippi, sheriff's office, pending extradition back to Cincinnati.
