A man on the run after he allegedly shot 11 people in Queens was found and arrested in North Carolina almost two years after the incident.

Tyrone “Big Rumbles” Miller, 22, is charged with 11 counts of attempted murder and other crimes in the shooting at a backyard barbeque in South Jamaica in August 2011, according to officials.

“[Miller] is accused of taking mindless gun violence to new heights by deliberately firing into a backyard filled with young partygoers and wounding nearly a dozen innocent people – including a young girl now confined to a wheelchair because of his alleged actions,” said District Attorney Richard Brown.

On August 27, 2011, Miller was at a backyard barbeque on Inwood Road when close to 1 a.m. he got into an argument with another attendee. According to the charges, he said, “I’ll be back.”

About 10 minutes later, Miller returned with back-up – two other people, and the three opened fire on the party, Brown said.

The 11 victims were transported to area hospitals and treated for gunshot wounds. Lenaesha Cheatham, who was 14 at the time, suffered two bullets to her spine. She is now paralyzed from the waist down.

As of Monday night, Miller was being held in North Carolina and awaiting extradition to New York. If convicted, he faces up to 25 years in prison on each individual murder charge.
