A 24-year-old man who has been charged in connection to a New Year's Eve triple homicide on Cleveland's west side is the brother of Olympic gold medalist Simone Biles.

Tevin Biles-Thomas is being held in Georgia, where he was arrested last week, and will be arraigned in the Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas on Sept. 13.



Biles-Thomas is currently the only person to have been charged for the shootings that killed three and injured two others. The violence erupted  shortly before midnight at a New Year's Eve party at an AirBnB unit above LoVellee's restaurant on Denison Road.

Biles-Thomas attended high school in Cleveland and is a current member of the United States Army.

Simone Biles commented on the news in a Twitter post Monday night.

"My heart aches for everyone involved," she wrote, "especially for the victims and their families. There is nothing I can say that will heal anyone's pain, but I do want to express my sincere condolences to everyone affected by this terrible tragedy."
