MARION, OH- On July 29, Marion Police Department officers responded to a shooting call at Gotham, a bar located at 137 W. Center St. in downtown Marion.

The victim, JaShawn Ray, age 24 of Marion, had been shot multiple times in the bar and was transported to Marion General Hospital, after which he was life-flighted to a Columbus hospital for further treatment.

On July 30th the Marion City Police identified the Gotham shooting suspect as Lloyd Hinton, age 25. Marion City Detectives along with the assistance of Marion County Prosecutor Ray Grogan issued a warrant for Lloyd Hinton for felonious assault.

On August 12, around 12:05 AM, officers responded to 237 Pennsylvania Ave. on a tip from the public that the suspect in the Gotham shooting, Lloyd Hinton, was present there. The occupants of the home did not initially cooperate and a search warrant was obtained for the residence. Before the search warrant could be served, Hinton exited the house and was arrested without incident. He was taken to Multi-County Correctional Center for his warrant stemming from the shooting.

Qwan Moore, age 20 of Columbus, was found to be in possession of marijuana and heroin and was charged accordingly. He also was charged for bringing drugs into the Multi-County Correctional Center.
