A shooting suspect from Braddock who had been on the run for a year tried to avoid capture Thursday afternoon before being taken into custody by members of the U.S. Marshals Western Pennsylvania Fugitive Task Force.

A warrant was issued last year for Darryl L. Reaves Jr., 35, charging him with homicide, aggravated assault and related crimes for the slaying of Tyrone Milton, 50, of Braddock, who was shot inside Deb's Place in Rankin on April 6, 2013.

The task force tracked Reaves to the 2200 block of Hawthorne Street in Swissvale, said Jon Gallagher, supervisory deputy U.S. Marshal, and he attempted to escape from the back door, then from a second-floor bedroom. Reaves was taken into custody by task force members inside the home.
