  • Renaldo Collins Junior was shot Tuesday inside the Lorain bar where his step-father is a bouncer. The 21 year old died a day later. Investigators say 24-year-old Anthony Villa had an argument with Collins's step dad, who tossed him out of the bar. Police say that Villa came back later for revenge. Family members say that Collins had just stopped in to pick up a late night snack. "His chicken wasn't ready yet, so he was talking to his mom. I went behind the bar to pick the garbage can up, and somthing told me to look up. Him and another guy were standing there [and then] bam, bam, bam," said Harold Hawthorne, the victim's stepfather. A $1,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest of Anthony Villa. Lorain Police believe he's armed and dangerous. The victim was to start classes at Bowling Green State next semester. If you have any information on this case please call Lorain Police at 440-204-2105 or fill out their online tipster form.
