U.S. Marshals have arrested a Youngstown man charged with the shooting death of an Akron woman.

Ja Shawn Ray, 29, of Indianola Avenue, was booked into the Mahoning County Jail Friday on a murder warrant issued by the Akron City Police Department late last week.

Ray is held in connection with the death of 24-year-old Sydney Horton at her 21st Street apartment on February 6, 2023.

The Summit County coroner said that Horton died of a gunshot wound to the head.  Her death has been ruled as a homicide.
