Olympic gold medalist Simone Biles said she was “eating [her] feelings” as news surfaced that her brother was charged for his alleged involvement in a triple homicide in Cleveland.
Tevin Biles-Thomas, 24, was arrested Thursday on murder, voluntary manslaughter, felonious assault and perjury charges in connection with the slaying at a New Year’s Eve party.
Biles, 22, a four-time gold medal champion on the US gymnastics team, hasn’t directly commented on her brother’s alleged involvement in the crime, but indicated that she needed some space.
“Eating my feelings don’t talk to me,” she tweeted around 9:50 p.m.
The shooting happened in an Airbnb rental apartment above a pizzeria in the Brooklyn Centre section of the city, when a group of people showed up uninvited and were asked to leave.
Devaughn Gibson, 23, DelVaunte Johnson, 19, and Toshon Banks, 21, were each shot multiple times and pronounced dead after the gunfire. Two others were wounded but survived.
Biles-Thomas is in custody awaiting a Sept. 13 arraignment.
“The relentless persistence of Cleveland police homicide detectives helped secure an indictment in this case,” Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Michael C. O’Malley said in a statement obtained by Cleveland.com. “It is through their hard work that we can begin to seek justice for these victims.”
