Two men have been arrested in Chicago, in connection with a 2005 triple homicide in Racine.


Dimitrius Ozier and Juwan Matthews had been wanted by the FBI for 2 years.  The two men are accused of killing Ryan Lockridge, Aaron Woods, and Frank Mister and injuring 4 others.


"A triple homicide back in 2005 was certainly one of the worst homicides in city history," said Racine Police Sergeant Michael Polzin.


"It's important that at some point we're able to draw that to a conclusion."


Police say the shooting was sparked during an arguement at a dice game in a parking lot. 


Ozier, who's 25, and Matthews, 23, are expected to be brought from Chicago to Racine.


Victim's Father Was Worried


Even though the arrests have been made, Eddie Lockridge knows that the end result will never bring his son Ryan back to him.


"Reality is still that he's gone and he'll never return again, and I miss him daily," said Ryan's father.


Eddie says he warned his son about the danger on the streets and saying that people are killed for no reason.
