ELYRIA — A jury was chosen for Patrick Gall’s trial, who was indicted in connection with a murder-for-hire plot in July.

Gall, 19, of East Cleveland, was charged with aggravated murder, murder, felonious assault and tampering with evidence following the shooting death of Willie Fisher on July 6 near the Convenient Food Mart on East Avenue. Gall and John Sullivan, 30, also of East Cleveland, were both charged in connection with Fisher’s death after they allegedly were hired by Bruce Arnoff, 56, of Solon, to kill Fisher.

In July, prosecutors in Elyria Municipal Court said the shooting of Fisher had been caught on video by security cameras.

Gall was arrested after a standoff with U.S. Marshals at his East Cleveland home after police put out a warrant for the wrong man, when Gall used another man’s identity during a traffic stop in Brooklyn less than four hours after Fisher’s body was found by police.

The trial is set to get underway at 9 a.m. Nov. 13 in Lorain County Common Pleas Judge John Miraldi’s court.
