AKRON, Ohio — A 24-year-old Akron man has been arrested and charged with murder.

On Thursday, a 29-year-old man was shot multiple times in the 1200 block of Kenmore Boulevard.

Police said Charles Deel was immediately identified as a suspect.

Deel was found hiding inside of a home in Scio, Ohio.

After a brief standoff, Deel was arrested without incident.

A 9mm gun was recovered from inside the home, according to marshals.

“Members of the task force worked closely with the Akron Police Department to get this fugitive into custody as quick as possible and before any more violence could occur with him on the streets," US Marshal Pete Elliott said.
