Warrensville Heights – This morning, members of the U.S. Marshals Service, Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force (NOVFTF) located and arrested Jason Wilder, 25, and Jaden Hughey, 19. Wilder and Hughey were wanted by the Cleveland Division of Police for aggravated murder.

According to police, on May 26, 2023, Cleveland Police responded to the area of E. 156th Street and Lakeshore Boulevard in connection to gunshots being reported in that area. When officers responded they located a blue sedan parked in the middle of the intersection. Inside the vehicle was a deceased juvenile male, who had sustained approximately 16 gun shot wounds to the head and chest. A second juvenile was located on scene with a gun shot wound to the leg. It is alleged that Wilder and Hughey, occupying another vehicle, pulled up next to the blue sedan, exited and then opened fire on the sedan, killing one male juvenile and injuring the other. Wilder and Hughey then fled the scene.

Investigators from the Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force developed information that Wilder and Hughey were living in the same residence in Warrensville Heights. This morning, members of the Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force arrested Wilder and Hughey at a residence near the 23700 block of Banbury Circle in Warrensville Heights.
