YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – The suspect in the July shooting death of a 17-year-old at a South Side gas station waived his preliminary hearing Wednesday in municipal court.
Judge Carla Baldwin bound a charge of murder against Carlos Flores Jr., 18, of Youngstown, over to a Mahoning County grand jury.
Flores has been in the county jail on $1 million bond since he was arraigned July 28 for the July 18 shooting death of Reshaud Biggs Jr., 17, at a gas station at South and East Avondale avenues.
Flores was taken into custody about a week after the shooting.
Police have not given a motive yet for the slaying and have released very little information on the case.
Flores also has a pending carrying concealed weapon and obstructing justice case in common pleas court stemming from a March arrest when police were investigating gunfire on South Avenue and found a gun on him.
He was free on a bond he posted in that case following his arraignment in municipal court when Biggs was shot and killed.
