CLEVELAND — U.S. Olympic gold medalist Simone Biles says her “heart aches” after her brother was arrested over a deadly shooting on New Year’s Eve at an Airbnb that left three people dead and two others injured.
Biles expressed her grief on Twitter, saying she’s “having a hard time processing what’s happened.”
Her brother, Tevin Biles-Thomas, 24, is being held in Georgia on charges of murder, attempted murder and felonious assault after being indicted by a Cuyahoga County grand jury.
Biles-Thomas went to high school in the Cleveland area.
Police said the New Year's Eve shooting happened when a group of men showed up at a party uninvited and then were asked to leave. That’s when police say Biles-Thomas opened fire into a crowd of people, killing three men and injuring two others.
He is scheduled to appear in Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas on Sept. 13, according to court records.
