Man wanted in Michigan homicide, attempted murders found on the Coast

Gulfport police and U.S. Marshals arrested a Lansing, Michigan, man accused in one man’s killing and and the attempted murder of two others in the out-of-state crime, according to an inspector with the U.S. Marshals Regional Gulf Coast Fugive Task Force.

Kyvon Deandre Wells, 20, was picked up in Gulfport around 11 a.m. Friday. He is being held at the Harrison County jail pending extradition to Michigan.

Authorities in Lansing have issued warrants for his arrest on one count of murder, two counts of assault with the intent to murder and one count of a felony firearms violation, the Lansing State Journal reported.

Wells is accused in a March 1 shooting in Lansing that resulted in the death of Delayno Raymont Hudson, 22, of Lansing, and injuries to two others, ages 66 and 22.

Police found the dead man and the injured after responding to report of a car crashing into another vehicle in a mobile home park in Lansing.

Wells was picked up in Gulfport without incident, said Jeremy Stilwell, inspector at the Gulfport branch of the U.S. Marshals Service.

Stillwell said Wells had relatives in Gulfport.
