YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - Bond is set at $1-million each for two brothers charged in connection with the  shooting death of a Youngstown man in a south side neighborhood.

25-year-old Bralin and 26-year-old Beandre Allen were arraigned by video in Youngstown municipal court on Tuesday.

The  suspects are accused of fatally shooting 24-year-old Maurise Kerns, whose body was found on the front porch of a vacant home on the 500 block of Idora Avenue around 3:00 a.m. Tuesday.

Police believe that the murder was in retaliation for a shooting on Glenwood Avenue ten days previous to the Kerns shooting.

Breandre Allen was in a wheelchair during the arraignment.  He was wounded in the foot during the shooting, and drove himself to an Akron Hospital for treatment.

Police believe Allen was concerned that if he went to a local hospital, police would have been notified about his wounds and link him to a crime.
