WILLIAMSPORT --- Authorities in Lycoming County have the man who they say pulled a trigger and killed a man Saturday night in custody.

Tyrell Boyd, 21, of Philadelphia was arraigned around 9 p.m in Williamsport.

Boyd is accused of killing Ansari Wilson, 21, of Williamsport Saturday.

Court papers indicate Boyd called a woman and told her he pulled the trigger that killed Boyd. That woman then told police when she was interviewed.

Police say Boyd fled to Philadelphia after the shooting.

Boyd is facing a long list of charges which include criminal homicide, aggravated assault and possessing firearms without a license.

Authorities say due to previous convictions, Boyd did not have a license to carry firearms.

Boyd is now locked up in the Lycoming County prison.
