The police spent months investigating the deadly shooting on New Year's Eve before announcing Thursday that they had arrested Biles-Thomas.

Police said the shooting took place shortly before midnight on New Year's Eve in an AirBnB rental apartment above a pizzeria in the Brooklyn Center district of Cleveland.
At the time, they said the shooter had fled the scene and found no traces of weapons.
It is not yet clear what the police eventually led to Biles-Thomas.
Police said a fight broke out when uninvited guests arrived at a party thrown into the apartment.

In a tweet shortly after the news about the arrest was announced, she wrote: "Eating my feelings doesn't talk to me & # 39;"
The 22-year-old gymnast spent the first years of her life with foster families while her mother struggled with substance abuse. She was eventually adopted together with her younger sister by their maternal grandfather.
Her brother Biles-Thomas went to high school in Cleveland and is currently in the US Army.
