Tallahassee, Florida (Press Release) -- On Thursday, August 5, 2010, the Tallahassee Police Department responded to a shooting at 3006 Garfield Street. Upon arrival, officers discovered that 36-year-old Mario Cloud had been murdered. Investigators soon learned that prior to his death Cloud had been involved in an argument over missing money. According to information obtained during this investigation, 36-year-old Lamont Harrison was identified as the person who shot and killed Cloud.

Investigator Vincent Boccio from the Tallahassee Police Department's Violent Crimes Unit obtained a murder warrant for the arrest of Harrison on Sunday, August 8, 2010.

Harrison eluded capture until a tip led the U.S. Marshal's Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force to a restaurant in Stockbridge, Georgia. U.S. Marshals captured Harrison without incident as he exited the restaurant at approximately 7:00PM Monday.

Harrison will eventually be extradited back to Tallahassee, Florida where he will face charges of murder, armed burglary, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

The full press release is attached above.
