YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – U.S. Marshals arrested a suspect who was wanted in a 2016 murder in Youngstown on Tuesday.
The arrest came just hours after Youngstown police released a photo of the suspect to the media, asking for tips from the community.
D’Aundre Turner, 25, was indicted in April on charges of aggravated murder, murder and aggravated robbery. Firearm specifications are attached to all the charges.
He is accused of killing Omar Croom on March 16, 2016. Croom was found shot to death outside an SUV at Oak Street Extension and Early Road.
Turner is accused, along with co-defendant 23-year-old Ranee Fitzgerald, of luring Croom to the area, where police say they shot and robbed him.
Members of the Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force previously arrested Fitzgerald during a traffic stop on Salt Springs Road in Girard in February.
