Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Michael C. O’Malley announced that Tyrone Leegrand, II, then 22, was indicted for the aggravated murder of Michael Prock, 41, on June 11, 2015.

The Grand Jury indicted Leegrand on 10 charges including Aggravated Murder, Murder, Aggravated Robbery, Felonious Assault, Carrying a Concealed Weapon, Tampering with Evidence, and Having Weapons Under Disability for a 2011 delinquency of Felonious Assault in Juvenile Court.

“I commend the Cleveland Police Department’s Homicide Unit for their relentless pursuit to find the person who ambushed and murdered a hard-working member of our community,” said Prosecutor O’Malley. “CPD left no stone unturned since June 2015 and their hard work resulted in today’s indictment.”

Michael Prock, 41, was working as a delivery driver for Nunzio’s Pizza, located at 7012 Lorain Avenue. Shortly after midnight on June 11, 2015, Mr. Prock arrived at W. 59th St. and Bridge Ave. to deliver an order of food. When Mr. Prock arrived, Leegrand approached the car to rob him. As he pulled away, Leegrand fired shots into the rear of the car, striking the victim. He continued to drive down W. 59th Street to Ellen Ave., where he crashed into a pole. He died at the scene as a result of the gunshot wound.

“Today is a good day for the Cleveland Division of Police and for the family of Michael Prock, who have been waiting for this indictment for a long time," said Cleveland Police Chief Calvin D. Williams. “I am thankful for our continued partnership with the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor's Office who continue to work with us and help put violent offenders behind bars.”

Arraignment is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. on January 11, 2018.
