YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) — A suspect in a shooting death along South Avenue in Youngstown has had his case bound over to a Mahoning County grand jury.

Aaron Clinkscale, 27, waived his preliminary hearing Tuesday on charges of murder and being a felon in possession of a firearm, which means the case can now be heard by the grand jury.

Clinkscale was arrested a couple days after Ra’mon Cooper, 29, was shot in the 2800 block of South Avenue.

Police said Cooper and Clinkscale were among a group of people arguing in a bar and security told them to go outside.

The argument continued outside, where Cooper was shot, police said.

Clinkscale remains in the county jail on $500,000 bond set at his arraignment.
