Man arraigned in killing at gas pump

YOUNGSTOWN — Carlos Flores Jr. of Glenwood Avenue, who turns 19 next week, will remain in the Mahoning County jail in lieu of $1 million bond following his arraignment Tuesday.

Flores was indicted on aggravated murder, murder and other offenses Sept. 2 in the July 18 shooting death of Reshaud Biggs Jr., 17. Bond of $1 million was set earlier in Youngstown Municipal Court.

During Flores’ first hearing in Mahoning County Common Pleas Court on Tuesday, Magistrate Nicole Alexander kept Flores’ bond at $1 million. A not guilty plea was entered for him.

Biggs was shot at the pumps at Gateway Gas Mart, 3216 South Ave. A warrant for Flores’ arrest was issued July 21.

Judge John Durkin of Mahoning County Common Pleas Court also approved a motion in July to revoke Flores’ bond in a case pending in common pleas court from March.

In that case, Flores was indicted on carrying concealed weapons and obstructing official business. Flores and Antonio Flores, 17, also of Glenwood Avenue, were arrested after police found them with handguns in their clothing.
