Police in Punta Gorda have arrested a man in a shooting death at a 7-Eleven.

They have charged 28-year-old Michael Russo with murder.

A judge has denied Russo bond at his first appearance. However, a bond hearing takes place tomorrow morning.

Authorities have accused Russo of killing 18-year-old Kyle Farishian.

Police in November found the store in flames. They also found Farishian’s body after firefighters put out the fire.

An affidavit shows someone kicked Russo off the 7-Eleven property twice last year.

In one case, he apparently tried passing off a bad ID while Farishian worked there.

The police chief calls this Punta Gorda’s first homicide in over six years.
