GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — The man accused of gunning down another man in a Grand Rapids restaurant parking lot last year has been officially charged.

Lawrence Scott was arraigned Thursday on charges of second-degree murder, second-offense felony firearm, being a felon in possession of a firearm and being a habitual offender .

Authorities say Scott was responsible for one of two shootings a New York Fried Chicken restaurant parking lot on Oct. 31, 2013. They say he shot and killed Domnick Floyd.

Scott was accused of the murder last week. He is already in a Michigan prison, serving time for an unrelated conviction.

Scott’s bond was denied Thursday. He is scheduled to be back in court for a preliminary hearing on May 29.

Monday, Juwan Mosley-James, who has also been connected to Floyd’s murder, was arraigned on charges of discharge of a firearm and perjury.  He waived his preliminary hearing on Tuesday.

Delorian Taylor, the other man shot outside the restaurant on Oct. 31, was shot by a man he was apparently trying to rob. Authorities say the deaths were not connected.

That makes Floyd’s the city’s most recent murder.
