EAST CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

A weapon was found Tuesday during a U.S. Marshals raid on a Cleveland home involving an Ashtabula double-homicide shooting suspect. 

U.S. Marshals recovered a .380 caliber handgun at the residence on East 141st on the eastside. 

The homeowner told Marshals that fugitive Marcus Lashley was hiding out in the house.

U.S. Marshal Pete Elliott said, "Due to the heinous nature of this criminal act Lashley was our top priority. With the last suspect in custody, we hope to bring justice to the family of the victims."
 
A mom and one of her sons died in the Jan. 27, 2014 shooting. A second son is still fighting for his life. 
 
Lashley was arrested after a 60 minute stand-off.

The suspected getaway driver, Briana Bernard, and another suspect, Lewis Arnold, were arrested  last week in Ashtabula.  

A third suspect, Taquan Matthers, was also taken into custody by Ashtabula Police. 

Ashtabula Police Officers say the shooters targeted the wrong house.

If you have any information concerning a wanted fugitive you can contact the U.S. Marshals anonymously at 1-866-492-TIPS or text "WANTED" to 411TIPS.

Reward money is available.
