TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) - The man accused of shooting and killing Davon Butler last week made an appearance in court on Thursday morning.

A judge set bond for Marvin Dyer, 57, at $1 million. His preliminary hearing is set for October 29.

Dyer was arrested on Wednesday and charged with murder in the death of Butler.

Officers found Butler, 18, suffering from at least one gunshot wound just after 10:30 p.m. in the 1100 block of Montrose. He died later that day at the hospital.

According to court documents, eight witnesses told Toledo Police that Dyer was in an argument with another man and pulled out a gun. Dyer was yelling and waving the gun around, fired the gun, hitting Butler instead of his intended target.

Court documents also said video evidence puts Dyer in the same room as Butler shortly before the shooting.

Anyone with information on the homicide is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 419-255-1111.
