Cleveland, OH - Jury convicts Elyria man of illegally having handgun
A jury convicted an Elyria man of illegally having a firearm and ammunition.
Gregory Raymore, 32, was convicted of one county of being a felon in possession of a firearm after a four-day trial.
Raymore possessed a .45-caliber handgun and 22 rounds of ammunition. Lorain police officers responded to a fatal shooting in an alleyway outside a bar in May 2018. The murder investigation led to the recovery of a firearm and ammunition near the crime scene that contained Raymore's DNA, although it was not the firearm that caused the death, according to trial testimony.
Raymore was not allowed to possess the firearm or ammunition because of multiple previous convictions, including for aggravated robbery, aggravated burglary, possession of drugs and being a felon in possession of a firearm, according to trial testimony and court documents
