Youngstown, OH –  This afternoon, members of the Youngstown Division of the Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force arrested Daundre Turner, 25. Turner was wanted by the Youngstown Police Department for aggravated murder and aggravated robbery.

It is alleged that on March 16, 2016 Turner and co-defendant, Ranee Fitzgerald, 23, lured Omar Croom, 22, to an address near Oak Street Extension and Early Road in Youngstown. Fitzgerald and Turner robbed and then shot and killed Croom and left him to die on the street. A warrant was issued for Turner on April 12, 2023.

On February 14, 2023, members of the Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force arrested Fitzgerald after a traffic stop on Salt Springs Road in Girard, Ohio. Today, members of the Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force arrested Turner near the 100 block of E. Hilton Ave after a foot chase, where Turner attempted to break into another home on E. Hilton to evade officers.

U.S. Marshal Pete Elliott stated “Continued efforts by the Youngstown Police Department led to the identification and arrest of this fugitive 7 years after the murder. Members of our task force will continue to work side by side with the Youngstown Police Department to ensure that the safety of the citizens of the greater Youngstown area is a high priority.”
