DETROIT (WWJ) - One of the FBI's "10 Most Wanted" fugitives, sought for a pair of execution-style murders at a Michigan house party, has been arrested in Georgia. 

Antwan Mims had been on the run -- considered armed and extremely dangerous -- after allegedly killing Cortez Lamont Miller and Michael Canthrell Johnson in Benton Harbor back in March. 

Investigators said Mims walked up to the two men as they stood together in the front yard, at 996 Lavette Street, and gunned them down in front of around 100 people. As both victims were lying on the ground injured, Mims allegedly shot Miller in the back of the head and Johnson in the face, and then walked away.

The governmen says Mims was located by authorities arrested shortly after 4 p.m. Tuesday at a residence in College Park, Georgia, by FBI Agents and FBI Atlanta Metro Major Offenders Task Force (AMMO)

Mims -- the 519th addition to the 10 Most Wanted List --  is a known member of the Gangster Disciples Street Gang, according to the FBI. He was born in Michigan but was known to have family and other personal ties to Georgia and other states. 


Charges against him include first degree premeditated murder, possession of a firearm by a felon, felony firearms and unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.
