Grand Jury hands up 12-count murder indictment for Youngstown shooting
A Youngstown man faces more charges and more serious charges for a shooting death on the city’s Northside.
On Tuesday, the Mahoning County Grand Jury handed up a 12-count indictment charging 18-year-old Elijah May with murder, felonious assault, aggravated assault, voluntary manslaughter, involuntary manslaughter, violation of a protection order, having weapons under a disability, criminal endangering, and three counts of discharging a firearm into a habitation.
May was originally charged with voluntary manslaughter and a weapons violation when he was arrested for the April 11 shooting death of 22-year-old Ray’mon Sims.
Police say May shot Sims as he was driving near Tod Lane at the time. Sims crashed his car into a house on Alameda Avenue.
May remains in the county jail awaiting arraignment before a judge in common pleas court.
