Two men who have been featured as some of Detroit's Most Wanted have been captured, according to U.S. Marshals and Detroit police.

Darrell Jones was featured as one of Detroit's Most Wanted just four days ago after he opened fire following a fight on Detroit's west side. He was wanted for Assault with intent to commit murder.

During the day, Jones saw his face on WXYZ and surrendered without incident.

The other man, Julius Coleman, was featured as Detroit's Most Wanted in February after he held a family at gunpoint and set their house on fire. That incident left two children in critical condition.

Coleman was wanted since November 2016, and agents were able to identify that Coleman used an alias of Eric Smith.

Agents in California were doing surveillance when they saw a man fitting Coleman's description leave the location they were surveilling. 

They following, and that's when Coleman saw and bailed out on foot. They were able to arrest him after several blocks of a foot pursuit.
