Jailed suspect was to be Fugitive of the Week

Kevin James

U.S. Marshal Rodney Hartzell made an impassioned plea to the community and offered a cash reward to get Kevin James off the street Tuesday morning. However, before Marshal Hartzell's plea could air was WNWO's Fugitive of the Week, Kevin James turned himself into Toledo police.

James, 20, was wanted in connection with the shooting death of Montrese Moore, 19. According to Toledo police, James gunned down Moore and wounded two others at the Stop and Go gas station at Cherry and Bancroft streets Friday evening. James was reportedly a passenger in a black Ford Explorer that pulled into the gas station. He and Moore allegedly argued before James opened fire.

Toledo police spokesman, Sgt. Joe Heffernan says they believe the shooting was gang related.

Heffernan said that James walked into the Safety Building in downtown Toledo Tuesday afternoon and turned himself in. He appeared for arraignment Wednesday morning in Toledo Municipal Court. Bond was set at $1 million on the murder and two counts of felonious assault. He is incarcerated at the Lucas County Jail.

Marshal Hartzell said of James, "He's armed. He's dangerous and willing to shoot someone for being in his area."

James is scheduled to appear for a preliminary hearing in Toledo Municipal Court on March 30th
