U.S. Marshals have arrested two men on the run for weeks wanted for a murder in Pennsylvania. They ran to Detroit but were arrested on Wednesday night at a house on Gouldburn.

In all, 10 U.S. Marshals almost missed them, as they were hiding quietly in a basement crawl space. They were arrested without incident and a gun was also recovered.

Grover Lyons, 25, and 14-year-old Kyon Lucas were both wanted for two separate murders in Erie, Penn.

One happened on New Year's Eve outside of a bar, while the other happened on Jan. 23 in a residential neighborhood when a man was shot while sitting inside a minivan.

Officials will not say how they were traced here to Detroit.  Erie Police say an eyewitness identified Lucas and he could be charged as an adult.
