Atlanta, GA – Today, members of the U.S. Marshals Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force (SERFTF) arrested Ian Price, 21, near Atlanta, Georgia. Price was wanted by the Cleveland Division of Police for aggravated murder.

According to the Cleveland Division of Police, on August 15, 2023, officers from the 5th District responded to the area of the 10500 block of Massie Ave. and located an unresponsive male lying face down with multiple gunshot wounds. The male eventually succumbed to his wounds and was later identified as a 14-year-old juvenile from Cleveland. Ian Price was later identified as a suspect in this incident and a warrant for homicide was issued for his arrest.

Task Force Officers from the Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force (NOVFTF) discovered through investigative measures that Price fled Ohio and was residing in Georgia. Today, members of the SERFTF arrested Price at a residence near the 900 block of S. Deshon Road, Lithonia, Georgia because of the information developed by the NOVFTF.

U.S. Marshal Pete Elliott stated, “The senseless violence and killing of juveniles needs to stop. Our USMS task force will do everything in our authority to bring these violent fugitives to justice, including arresting them over 700 miles away from Cleveland.”
