CLEVELAND — A fugitive wanted for allegedly killing a father of two last summer in Cleveland has been arrested by the U.S. Marshals Service.

Michael Ward, 19, was wanted by authorities in connection with the death of Isaac Carson Jr., who was killed outside the Lady Luck’s Pub on Cleveland’s East Side on June 5, 2018.

Carson, a barber and father of two, died following a fight inside his vehicle. Carson had just recently won a $50,000 lottery ticket, authorities said.

On Dec. 10, Ward was identified as a suspect in the case.

Ward was found by the U.S. Marshals Service hiding out inside a home on 24th Street NW in Barberton Tuesday morning.
