A homicide suspect identified as 29-year-old Ian Rich of Newburgh Heights was arrested Sunday night after authorities reported an "incident" on I-77 in the area of I-480.

We've since learned the situation involved a shooting that left a 58-year-old man dead and a 59-year-old woman hurt.

After putting out a warning that Rich should be considered armed and dangerous, Newburgh Heights Police Chief John T. Majoy says Rich was ultimately arrested in Bratenahl.

It was around 10:50 p.m. when Bratenahl officers reported seeing the suspect's vehicle driving westbound on I-90. They conducted a traffic stop and detained him at the scene.

In new details released late Monday morning, the Cuyahoga Heights Police Department -- which is handling the investigation -- said the victims are both from Garfield Heights. They have been identified as follows:

- Killed in the shooting: 57-year-old David Perez Jr.
- Hurt in the shooting: Jacquline Perez -- taken to MetroHealth Medical Center where she was treated and released

Police say the shooting took place around 9:25 p.m. on I-77 South just south of the Grant Avenue onramp.

Rich is currently being held in the Strongsville jail pending further investigation.
