Murder Suspect Arrested

COLUMBUS, Ohio (WTVN)--A suspect is now in custody for a triple-shooting from Wednesday in the Linden area.

Officers say 21-year-old Leo Duane Stanford Jr. was apprehended early Thursday at an address on Fountainview Court without further incident, where he had been hiding since the murder.

Police say Stanford shot and killed his ex-girlfriend, 22-year-old Tiarra Seals, and injured two others, that were all sitting in a car along Argyle Drive early Wednesday.

Family members say Stanford and Seals have a child together.

The three victims drove themselves to OSU Hospital-East, where Seals was pronounced dead on Wednesday.

The incident is Columbus's 94th homicide of 2018.
