Bond set for Youngstown murder suspect, deemed flight risk
Bond is set at $1 million cash surety for a Youngstown man charged in connection with the shooting death of a man at a gas station.
Samuel Byrd, 68, was arraigned in Youngstown Municipal Court Tuesday afternoon. He is accused of shooting and killing 29-year-old Keimone Black at the Shell gas station on South Avenue.
Police were called to the gas station just after 3 a.m. on June 15th. Police told 21 News that Black was shot several times, and was found on the ground next to a car that had numerous bullet holes. They referred to the incident as a "targeted shooting."
Byrd was arrested Friday at the Boardman Inn following a search warrant executed by Youngstown Police, State Troopers, and multiple other agencies.
The judge deemed Byrd a flight risk.
