Standoff on Cleveland's east side ends with arrest of murder suspect

CLEVELAND - A man wanted for the September murder of a store clerk at the YaYa market was arrested Friday morning after a standoff.

At approximately 7:30 a.m., members of the Violent Crimes Task Force, including members of the Cleveland Division of Police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, went to a home on East 64th Street to serve an aggravated murder warrant on Darryl Coleman.

Police said Coleman was in the home with a 2-year-old child and thought to be armed. The Cleveland Division of Police SWAT Unit responded, entered the home and removed the child without incident.

Coleman was located in the home after a search and taken into custody without incident. Two handguns were recovered in the home.

Coleman was wanted for the murder of Duane Jacobs, which occurred on Sept. 25, when Jacobs was shot in the face during a robbery.

Coleman will be held at the central prison unit awaiting aggravated murder charges.
