Woman Wanted in Deadly Cleveland Shooting Arrested in New York

Brooklyn, NY – This morning, members of the U.S. Marshals Service, New York-New Jersey Regional Fugitive Task Force and the New York Police Department arrested Cierra Mack, 30. Mack was wanted by the Cleveland Division of Police for aggravated murder.

It is alleged that on September 11, 2021, Mack shot and killed Chiffion Jefferson, 28, in front of her three young children in the hallway of an apartment at Garden Valley Apartments in Cleveland. Mack fled the scene of the shooting and was on the run ever since. Members of the Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force exhausted countless manhours over the past months tracking Mack’s whereabouts. Information was developed that Mack had fled Ohio to Brooklyn, New York. This morning, members of the fugitive task force in New York arrested Mack at an apartment near the 80 block of Clarkson Ave in Brooklyn, New York.

U.S. Marshal Pete Elliott stated, “Seeking justice for the victim’s family, specifically her three innocent children, her sister and her mother, was all the motivation our task force members needed to relentlessly pursue this violent fugitive over the past several months. This fugitive is no longer a threat to the public due to the outstanding effort of one Cleveland Police Sargent, who was the lead on this investigation for our task force.”

Anyone with information concerning any wanted fugitive can contact the Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force at 1-866-4WANTED (1-866-492-6833), or you can send a web tip. Reward money is available, and tipsters may remain anonymous.
