Man Charged in Fatal Shooting at Erie Park Posts Bond
The man charged in a fatal shooting at Rodger Young Park in the City of Erie earlier this year is free on bond.
Michael Ochrang, 24, was released Wednesday after 10 percent of $150,000 bond was posted, according to court records.
It comes after Erie County Court of Common Pleas Judge Daniel Brabender issued an order reducing Ochrang's bond from $250,000 straight after a hearing Monday morning.
Ochrang faces charges including homicide, aggravated assault, recklessly endangering another person and firearms violations.
Officers were called to a disturbance with shots fired at the park around 1 a.m. Jan. 15. They arrived to find Noah King, 21, of Erie, dead.
Police also found Ochrang at the scene, took him in for questioning and recovered the weapon.
King died from a gunshot wound to the torso. Erie County Coroner Lyell Cook ruled King's death as a homicide, the city's first of the year.
Ochrang was held for court on all charges following a preliminary hearing Feb. 22. He is scheduled to appear before Judge Brabender for his formal arraignment April 3.
