Police catch 'armed and dangerous' suspect in deadly Hibbing shooting

He had been on the run from the law since Christmas Day.

The man wanted in a fatal shooting in Hibbing on Christmas Day has been apprehended after a three-day search, reports say.

Authorities say Jerome Spann, 29, shot two people at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, killing one of them and fleeing the scene with "an unknown black male."

When law enforcement alerted the public to their manhunt, they said Spann might be headed to St. Paul because he has relatives there, and sure enough, that's where he was caught.

On Friday afternoon, agents from the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension and local police apprehended the fugitive "at a home on Sycamore Street East in St. Paul," according to the Minnesota Department of Public Safety.

He has since been booked into Ramsey County jail on murder charges, with other charges apparently pending.

Few details about the shooting have been released, though WDIO has identified the homicide victim as 34-year-old Jeryel McBeth. 

His family tells the station that he leaves behind two kids.
