CLEVELAND — A man who allegedly shot and killed a 19-year-old at the Cleveland Public Library South Brooklyn Branch last month appeared in court for his arraignment.

Paul Sender, 18, was given a $1 million bond and his case has been assigned to Judge Nancy Margaret Russo. His next pretrial date hasn't been scheduled yet.

Watch his arraignment below:

Sender is charged with aggravated murder, murder, aggravated robbery, felonious assault and tampering with evidence. He was indicted Monday by a Cuyahoga County Grand Jury.

On July 23 around 6:11 p.m., officers responded to the library at 4303 Pearl Rd. to find 19-year-old Brandon Cutnoe with multiple gunshot wounds inside the library. Officers and EMS provided first aid to Cutnoe, who was taken to a nearby hospital where he died from his injuries.

A 16-year-old allegedly involved in the shooting was turned in to the Juvenile Detention Center last week by family. The teen is charged with aggravated murder, murder, aggravated robbery and felonious assault, according to court documents.

The teen is not being named at this time because he is a juvenile.
