CLEVELAND — Three homicide suspects wanted by authorities for separate cases across the greater Cleveland area were arrested by the U.S. Marshals this week over a two-day period.

The first suspect — Dorian Lynch, 23 — was wanted for the shooting death of Kevin Boyd outside a Cleveland liquor store located in the 4000 block of Lee Road on March 20. Lynch was taken into custody after being located at a home in Cleveland's Hough neighborhood.
