Man, teenage girl charged in fatal Forest Park shooting
Police say it was a botched robbery that turned deadly.
FOREST PARK, Ohio (WXIX) - Police on Wednesday announced two arrests in the shooting death of 20-year-old Darnay Allmond last month.
Deaundre Manning, 18, and a 16-year-old girl are charged with aggravated murder and aggravated robbery.
Manning’s bond was set at $1.25 million.
Officers found Allmond shot to death on Pellston Court around 2 a.m. on July 29.
He was originally found along the berm of the roadway by a customer of Syndi’s Saloon, which is located across the street.
Police say they believe Manning and the underage suspect lured Allmond to a secluded area on Pellston Court intending to rob him.
The suspects shot Allmond before fleeing the scene, according to police.
Tanika Shields, Allmond’s mom, knows the arrests won’t bring her son back, but it does give her some comfort.
“I was overjoyed and happy, but at the same time, I know that my son won’t be back here in the flesh. But it brought some relief to me to know that the killer is not out here committing crimes and terrorizing other people’s families.”
Allmond’s cousin, Donita Beavers, has no sympathy for people suspected of killing her family member.
“I hope y’all get what you deserve because you killed an innocent person for no reason,” said Beavers.
Allmond would have turned 21 on Sept. 20.
His mother is planning a celebration in his memory to celebrate his life.
