CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) -Two juveniles charged in connection to the quadruple shooting in Akron are in custody Tuesday.

According to the U.S. Marshals, members of their fugitive task force apprehended the two individuals in Canton. A firearm was located in the residence where they were found.

Detectives investigating the shooting identified three youth suspects in the case between the ages of 17 and 16.

The trio is believed to have entered a home in the 900 block of Rowe Street June 26 and shot four victims: a 12-year-old boy, a 24-year-old man, a 39-year-old woman and 34-year old Brandon J. Varner, who was pronounced dead on the scene.

Three of the victims were transported to hospitals and are expected to recover, authorities said.

The suspects fled on foot out of the rear of the house, according to police reports.

The third suspect was arrested earlier Tuesday on unrelated charges.
