The case against murder suspect Matthew Mason was bound over to a county grand jury during an appearance Wednesday in Lorain Municipal Court.

Police issued a warrant for the arrest of Mason, 18, after Ricardo Calloway, 19, was found dead in the West 22nd Street home of his girlfriend’s mother March 22.

Witnesses told police Mason ran from the home after allegedly shooting Calloway.

Police in Augusta, Maine, found Mason while executing a search warrant for a man named Larry Murphy.

Members of Calloway’s family were in the courtroom when Mason appeared before Judge Mark Mihok. As Mason walked into the courtroom, his wrists and ankles shackled, an unidentified woman sitting with the Calloway family cried out and ran out of the room.

“My baby is gone; that’s all I know,” said Calloway’s grandmother Patricia Calloway. “Don’t know why. They haven’t told us that yet. We just keep going. The detectives told me this would be expected. Now we just move on to county.”
