CLEVELAND — Authorities are asking for the public’s help in locating a fugitive wanted for the death of a man who was shot during an argument in 2017.

Edwin Richard Murry Jr., 24, has been listed as the fugitive of the week by the U.S. Marshals Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force.

The shooting happened on Sept. 4, 2017, outside a convenience store on the 4700 block of Clark Avenue, authorities said. A second person allegedly involved in the shooting — Shamir Lawson — has already been arrested.

Authorities say the victim, Ray’Feiar Ramone Leary, was sitting inside his car when Murry and Lawson walked up to him. An argument broke out between Lawson and Leary and when Leary tried to get out of the vehicle, the two men allegedly held the door shut and shot him multiple times, authorities said.

Murry is described as a black male about 5 feet, 10 inches tall and weighing around 140 pounds.

Murry has ties to the Cleveland area and may be in the 3400 block of West 46th Street or the 3300 block West 98th Street. He should be considered armed and dangerous, authorities said.

Anyone with information about his whereabouts is asked to call the U.S. Marshals Service at 1-866-4WANTED or text the word “WANTED” along with a tip to 847411 (TIP411).
