An Akron man is accused of helping to hide the gun used in a November homicide.
Christopher D. Byrd, 23, of Druid Walk, has been charged with tampering with evidence and obstructing official business.
Police say Byrd is a friend of Phillip Pope, who is awaiting trial for the killing of Will A. Lamon, 21, of Akron, on Nov. 25. They allege that Byrd helped to hide and dispose of the gun used in the incident.
Police say a domestic dispute precipitated the shooting.
Lamon was inside a car parked near the intersection of Buckingham Street and Fairbanks Place when Pope shot him in the torso.
Pope has been charged with aggravated murder.
