INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Police arrested a fugitive from Cleveland, Ohio right here in Indianapolis. Police in Cleveland believe that back in December, 24-year old Jacque Renode stabbed and killed a 14-year old and days later shot and injured a 13-year old.
On Tuesday, IMPD says Renode was involved in some kind of disturbance on the city’s east-side near 10th and Drexel Avenue. After arriving on the scene, officers discovered that Renode had a warrant for his arrests out of Cleveland. IMPD says they arrested him, but he somehow managed to run off.
Authorities set up a perimeter and with the help of a K-9 officer they were able to find him just blocks away on North Bosart Avenue near 10th Street.
There police say Renode was on a rooftop of an abandoned home, trying to hide from authorities.
Neighbors say they were startled by the commotion.
“My husband was like, there’s cops everywhere. I come out and I’m like, wow. They had everything blocked off,” said Carolyn Hutchison who lives across the street.
Hutchison says police ordered everyone to get inside their homes. IMPD says they used, what they call, less lethal rounds to get Renode to surrender. They say he surrendered after that without incident. Renode is being held in the Marion County jail awaiting an extradition hearing. No word on how long he had been in Indiana.
