CLEVELAND — The U.S. Marshals arrested a second man Friday wanted by Cleveland police for a homicide that stemmed from an armed robbery in February at a convenience store on Lakeview Road in Cleveland's Glenville neighborhood.

Keyshawn Smith, 20, was arrested at a home in the 6300 block of Lansing Avenue in Cleveland and was taken into custody Friday.

Smith was charged with aggravated murder for his connection in an armed robbery at In and Out Beverage, 891 Lakeview Road, that resulted in the death of the store clerk.

One of the alleged robbers exchanged gunfire with the store clerk, according to a police report.

A 33-year-old employee of the store was found with a gunshot wound to the head behind the counter. He was taken to University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center where he was pronounced dead, according to a police report.

Robert McKelvey, 21, who was allegedly with Smith during the robbery, was arrested by task force members later in the day on Feb. 5 in the 6100 block of South Perkins Road in Bedford. McKelvey was also charged with aggravated murder.
