A man wanted for murder in connection with a fatal double shooting in Paddock Hills in October was arrested by police in Miami, according to Cincinnati police.

Jvonnie Chandler, 26, was arrested by the Miami Police Department's homicide unit Thursday on a murder warrant, police said in a news release.

Officers responded around 7 p.m. on Oct. 11 to the 4300 block of Reading Road for a reported shooting, police said. Once on the scene, the officers found two shooting victims.

Monty Reid, 27, was found inside a vehicle that had crashed into one of the garage doors of Cincinnati Fire Department Station 9 on Reading Road, according to police. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The second victim, who hasn't been identified, was taken to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center for treatment.

Cincinnati police said Chandler was involved in a traffic crash at Fifth Street and Central Avenue on the afternoon of Nov. 16. Police were already looking for him.

He fled from the crash on foot to the area of Sixth and Plum streets, police said, where it's believed he went into a parking garage.

A SWAT team responded to search the garages. Police said the SWAT team got involved because of the "serious nature of Mr. Chandler's warrants."

Jail records show Chandler is being held at the Miami-Dade County Jail, where he's awaiting extradition back to Cincinnati.
