Police arrested the suspect who is accused of shooting and killing a man inside a car in east Erie early Saturday morning.

Torrance Norris, 29, has been arrested and was arraigned Monday morning on charges including homicide, two counts of aggravated assault, firearms not to be carried without a license and tampering with evidence. He was taken to the Erie County Prison after being denied bond.

The victim is Naim Jahce Bayete, 21, of Erie, according to Erie County Coroner Lyell Cook. An autopsy Sunday determined Bayete died from a gunshot wound to the head. Cook ruled the death as a homicide.

Officers responded to the 800 block of E. 21st St. near the intersection with Wayne St. about 3:20 a.m. after neighbors reported hearing multiple gunshots.

They found Bayete with a gunshot wound outside an Acura car. The coroner pronounced Bayete dead at the scene.

Police said the shooting followed an altercation between Norris and Bayete at the gas station at E. 18th and Parade St.

Surveillance video showed Norris park a Chevrolet Tahoe vehicle near the crime scene and wait for Bayete to arrive before opening fire. Police said they recovered 11 spent 9mm casings.

Investigators used surveillance video and conducted a search of similar vehicles to track the SUV to an address in the 900 block of E. 36th St., according to the criminal complaint. Police said they found it backed into a driveway.

During an interview with police, Norris said he drove the vehicle to the gas station around 3 a.m. - about 20 minutes before the shooting, according to investigators. Surveillance video showed Norris went into the store before coming back out, run into Bayete in the parking lot and exchange words before Norris got into his vehicle and left, the criminal complaint said.

Norris's girlfriend, Jessica Ramos-Hernandez, faces charges including obstruction, tampering and disorderly conduct for allegedly aiding the suspect.
