Parma police said while Sinclair robbed the Sunoco on Pearl Road Saturday evening, he exchanged gunshots with Sposit. Later, the SWAT team arrested Sinclair at a house on West 46th Street.

He was taken to MetroHealth Medical Center for gunshot wounds. When he was released, he was taken to the Parma City Jail.

The city of Parma asked for a $5 million bond, saying Sinclair is a flight risk, shot at a witness and was involved in another armed robbery the night of the murder.

The judge set his bond at $3 million.
