PARMA, OH (WOIO) - Logan Sinclair, 21, plead guilty to aggravated murder in the fatal armed robbery at the Sunoco Gas Station on Pearl Rd. in Parma on Nov. 28, 2015.
Police responded to the Sunoco around 7:30 p.m. for a report of shots fired inside the business. When officers arrived, they found owner Robert Sposit, 50, dead inside.
Police say that Sinclair entered the store and demanded money before attempting to flee. Sposit then shot Sinclair, who fell to the ground. Sposit attempted to detain him by standing over him and holding him at gunpoint, but, as he turned his head to tell witnesses to call 911, he was shot four times.
Police say Sinclair then pointed his firearm at another witness and fired a round at him before wrestling a second witness and fleeing the store.
Later that night, a Parma police officer observed a car in the 5200 block of West 46th Street in Parma that matched the description of the car Sinclair allegedly used when he fled the scene.
Police discovered that Sinclair was hiding inside a house on the street. SWAT was called in and authorities surrounded the home. Sinclair eventually surrendered to police. He was taken to MetroHealth Hospital for treatment for his gunshot wound.
Sinclair will be sentenced on Nov. 14.
