PARMA, OHIO  - The city of Parma honored three citizens who helped to capture the suspect in a fatal Parma gas station shooting.

The shooting took place in late November at the Sunoco gas station on Pearl Road. 

21-year-old Logan D. Sinclair, of Cleveland, robbed the Sunoco and during the robbery, Sinclair and the owner, 51-year-old Robert Sposit, of Parma, exchanged gunshots. Sposit died at the scene. 

Two of those honored Tuesday night – Steve Oska Sr. and Steve Oska Jr. - were in the store at the time of the robbery and shooting. The third man, Gregory Starkey , followed Sinclair in the getaway car and was able to provide a partial  license plate number.

Parma Police Officer Jonathan Fullerton was able to use that information to find the vehicle and subsequently arrest Sinclair,  who has been charged with aggravated murder in Sposit's death.
