Nearly every week for much of this past summer, there was news of a homicide in the city of Lorain after a year when there were zero. Of the 11 homicides, nine were the result of gun violence and two were stabbings. The suspected murderer is in jail in all of the homicides but two. Police are still looking for a suspect wanted in connection to the slaying of Robert Gnizak, 49, who was killed Aug. 14 while going through the drive-thru at Taco Bell. Police also are seeking Abline Cannon, a man considered to be an armed and dangerous fugitive wanted in the murder of David Barriero, 23, who was killed during a home invasion Dec. 10.
