    Calvin Warren, who had been described by authorities as "ruthless" and was believed to be involved with at least five murders, was arrested Friday morning, authorities said.

    Warren, 22, was arrested and booked into Miami-Dade County jail at 6:19 a.m. on Friday on two counts of second-degree murder, aggravated assault with a firearm and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, the Miami-Dade County Corrections website said.

    Shawntavia Bryant was arrested along with Warren, and she faces a charge of accessory after the fact, police said.

    Interim Police Chief Manuel Orosa said Bryant is Warren's girlfriend, and she had been harboring him. She admitted that she knew Warren was wanted for a double murder, the police report said.

    "He was hiding out with an individual that was arrested, happened to be his girlfriend, and he was outside the city coming back and forth, so it was a little bit difficult to get him, but we finally got him," Orosa said.

    Authoriites had said Warren was believed to be involved with at least five murders, including two last month.

    Warren was arrested in connection to two separate shooting incidents, one on Aug. 8 and another on Aug. 27, said Keandra Simmons, Miami Police spokeswoman. In the first incident, two people were killed and in the latter, the victim was shot but not fatally, Simmons said.

    Miami Police had said Warren was also believed to be connected to a shooting last Friday when gunmen confronted two men and a 2-year-old boy in their car in Miami. Both men were shot and killed, but the young boy was unharmed. Police had said they were unsure of what led to an apparent deadly feud between the gunmen and the victims in the shooting.

    Authorities said, now that Warren was behind bars, the public shouldn’t be afraid to come forward with any other information to help bolster these cases or other crimes that may involve him.

    "He's ruthless. He's taking people's lives. What is this man capable of next? We need to stop him," Det. Kenia Reyes had said over the weekend.
