Two brothers accused of being the gunmen who entered a home in Arkansas and stole a firearm were found Thursday afternoon in a motel in the Beaver Falls area by members of the U.S. Marshal's Western Pennsylvania Fugitive Task Force.

Paris Scott, 18, and Ronnie Scott, 20, who authorities say are Chicago natives who most recently lived in Searcy, Ark., were found shortly before 1 p.m., hiding in a motel near the Beaver Falls exit of the Pennsylvania Turnpike, said Michael Baughman, chief deputy marshal.

Ronnie Scott was captured in the motel. Paris Scott escaped through a motel window and was captured a short time later, Baughman said. Both men are being held in the Beaver County Jail to await extradition.
