A suspect in the fatal shooting of a teen at a Mr. Hero restaurant has been arrested.

CLEVELAND HEIGHTS, Ohio (AP) – Police say a 20-year-old man charged with aggravated murder in the fatal shooting of a teenage employee at an Ohio sandwich shop was free on bond for a burglary conviction at the time of the shooting and faced sentencing next week.

Cleveland Heights police on Wednesday said Cleveland Heights resident Daveion Perry has been charged with shooting 15-year-old Sunny Ravi Patel in the head before taking cash from a Mr. Hero sandwich shop Friday night. A judge set a $1 million bond Wednesday.

Perry’s attorney says Perry is “upset with what he did” but wouldn’t elaborate.

Police say Perry was arrested Sunday after officers spotted him entering a discount store wearing the same clothes he wore during Friday’s robbery and during a robbery Saturday at a Subway in University Heights.
