YOUNGSTOWN — A suspect in a late 2018 shooting death on the South Side was arrested today by U.S. Marshals.

Lavontae Knight, 22, is charged with aggravated murder and felonious assault for the death of Trevice Harris, 37, who died of gunshot wounds Dec. 30 at St. Elizabeth Youngstown Hospital after he was found wounded about 11:10 p.m. that day in an SUV at a 3200 Market St. gas station.
