Jarrion Hood appears in a Durham courtroom Oct. 29, 2014, on a murder charge in the shooting death of Jawad Ali Razai.

— A judge in Durham set bond at $3 million Wednesday for a man accused of killing another man during a Craigslist purchase last fall.

Jarrion Hood, 18, faces charges of murder, possession of a firearm by a felon and robbery with a dangerous weapon in connection with the Oct. 28 shooting death of Jawad Ali Razai, of Raleigh.

Authorities say Razai, 18, and his father had gone to Durham to buy a phone that he had found on the online classifieds site and that Hood allegedly tried to rob him when he arrived at the location.

Hood's attorneys had asked Wednesday for a $250,000 bond.

According to court records, Hood was on probation at the time of the crime.

In September 2013, he was convicted of second-degree kidnapping and assault with a deadly weapon – charges that stemmed from a May 7, 2013, shooting that wounded a man.
