A man wanted on an aggravated murder charge from a November 19 murder in Youngstown has been arrested in Atlanta.

Kaylon Adams, 32, was being sought by the Mahoning County Sheriff’s Office for aggravated murder, felonious assault, improperly discharging a firearm into a habilitation, and having a weapon under disability in the shooting death.

On November 19, Youngstown police officers responded to Zents Avenue and found the body of Christian Allan Oliver, 29, in the roadway with multiple gunshot wounds. A 73-year-old woman was also shot in the leg and treated.

Adams was later identified as a person of interest in this fatal incident, and warrants were issued for his arrest.

This week, the Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force received information that Adams was in the Atlanta, Georgia, area.

Adams was arrested Thursday by the US Marshals Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force with the assistance of the Fulton County Police SWAT Team and the Atlanta Police Department near the 2000 block of Sandtown Rd, Atlanta. In addition to the arrest, three firearms were found at the residence. Adams was booked into the Fulton County Jail, awaiting extradition back to Ohio.

U.S. Marshal Pete Elliott stated, “This violent fugitive attempted to evade arrest by fleeing hundreds of miles from Youngstown, Ohio to Atlanta, Georgia but the collaborative efforts of our task force and our state and local partners in Mahoning County led to the arrest.”

Youngstown Police Captain Jason Simon also released a statement saying while an arrest was not made immediately after the shooting, officers did not give up in the investigation and instead built a "strong, evidence-based case" against Adams.

"The City of Youngstown has the best patrol officers and detectives in the nation, but we cannot successfully combat crime and help end the violence without the assistance of our brave and resilient residents. None of us can do it alone, but together we can accomplish anything," Simon said.

YPD thanked the U.S. Marshals and the Atlanta Police Department for their roles in locating and apprehending Adams.
