ELYRIA – Police have a third man in custody following the murder of 24-year-old Davion Strupe on Tuesday night in Elyria.

Anthony Marcano, 22, of Cleveland turned himself in at the Cuyahoga County Jail around 10 a.m. Thursday. He was the third murder suspect to be arrested in connection with Strupe’s death.

Police said Strupe died after he was beaten and shot during a ruckus involving 30 people at 1143 Garden St. around 11:30 p.m. Tuesday.

When police arrived at the scene after receiving 911 calls about gunshots in the area, they found a woman screaming and holding Strupe, who was bleeding and unconscious.

Strupe was taken to University Hospitals Elyria Medical Center where he died from the injuries. An autopsy was being completed today, according to Chief Deputy Coroner Frank Miller.

Elyria Police Capt. Chris Costantino said officers are still investigating and declined to comment on a possible motive.

Marcano was picked up by local police and taken to Lorain County Jail, where he was being held without bond. He is charged with murder, kidnapping and aggravated burglary. He was the final suspect being sought by police in the case.

Markus Martin, 26, was arrested at an Elyria apartment on Wednesday and 17-year-old Tristen Belfiore turned himself in at Lorain County Juvenile Detention Home on Wednesday.
