The victim of a deadly shooting of a bouncer at Game 7 Bar and Grill on South Arlington Rd. in Akron Saturday night has been identified as 33-year-old Daniel Turner.
Initially, Thomas Dunn III, 19, and Anthony Cox, 21, were charged with Obstruction of Justice, but the charges have since increased. Dunn is charged with Murder and Cox charged with Complicity to Commit Murder.
Saturday's incident is the second deadly shooting at Game 7 in just over a month, and now residents are calling on local officials to do something about it.
Back on January 28th, 2017, 23-year-old D'Cortez Taylor was found shot to death in his car that was parked in the Game 7 parking lot.
Residents of the area have called on Akron City Council to do something about the area. Councilwoman Tara Mosely-Samples is suggesting making that area a "Dry Zone," or free of alcohol. She tells WKYC-TV that she's not sure if that's the final answer, but she thinks it could help the situation.
An Akron bar security guard is dead, two men in custody but charged with obstructing justice. The call came in from the Game 7 Bar and Grille on South Arlington around nine Saturday night.
No ID on the guard, who was shot in the hip and died at City Hospital. 19-year old Thomas Dunn III and 21-year old Anthony Cox are due to be arraigned on the obstruction charges later today.
