Fugitive captured on Cleveland porch

YOUNGSTOWN —   Eyewitnesses told pretty much the same story: A tall man walked over to a bar patron and, with little or no conversation, opened fire.

When Llewellyn Nelson fell to the floor, the gunman stood over him and fired again. The 55-year-old Oxford Avenue man, hit in the face and upper torso, was taken to St. Elizabeth Health Center in critical condition.

One bullet also hit the left foot of a 30-year-old Alameda Avenue woman who just happened to be sitting on the bar stool next to Nelson. Tammy Wolfe, who dove to the floor and then scrambled out the front door, told police she heard at least four shots.

That was seven months ago at Soso’s, a bar on North Avenue. Within a few days of the shooting, Detective Sgt. Patrick Kelly had warrants issued for the arrest of Glenn “Doughnut” Floyd, 46, of Edwards Avenue.

Floyd, though, was nowhere to be found — until late Thursday afternoon. Members of the local U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force passed on information to their counterparts in Cleveland, who found Floyd on a friend’s porch and took him into custody.
