Editor’s note: 19 News reported Gianni Gray had been captured after sources confirmed the arrest. However, U.S. Marshals discovered the man they caught was actually not Gray. The confusion arose when the man they took into custody used the same alias and date of birth as the suspected I-90 killer.
CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Last July, gunfire erupted and chaos broke out on I-90 as a drive-by shooter sprayed bullets into another car.
Andre Williams and Malachia Perez Stewart III, both 35, died on scene on the West 117th Street exit ramp.
Cleveland police issued a warrant for the Garfield Heights man, Gianni Gray, 36, who is accused of pulling the trigger.
Family members were told by authorities on Thursday that Gray was arrested by U.S. Marshals in Austin, Texas; however, marshals now say they captured a different man who happened to be using the same alias and date of birth as Gray.
Gray has now been on the run for almost a year.
He is wanted on aggravated murder charges by Cleveland Police.
