HOUSTON (WCMH) — A 32-year-old Ohio man wanted in connection to a north Columbus fatal shooting has been arrested in Texas.

Evan Jones, 32, was taken into custody in Houston on Thursday on an outstanding arrest warrant for murder charges from Franklin County, according to the United States Marshals Service. An investigation by the Southern Ohio Fugitive Apprehension Strike Team revealed Jones was in Houston, and U.S. Marshals quickly apprehended Jones after a vehicle pursuit and foot case.

Jones and Jermaine Johnson, 32, are accused of killing Anthony Elmore in November of 2022. Documents in the Franklin County Municipal Court showed that Johnson was arrested on March 31. Prosecutors charged him with murder as well.
