Struthers man arraigned on charges



CAMPBELL -- Richard V. Villanueva, 19, of 334 Woodbine, Struthers was released on a $50,000, 10 percent, bond Friday after being arraigned in Campbell Municipal Court on charges of complicity to commit aggravated robbery.
Villanueva was arrested along with a 17-year-old Cleveland boy Thursday night in connection with the shooting and robbery of a 19-year-old Campbell man.
Robert J. Shaffer of Jackson Street was in critical condition at St. Elizabeth Health Center late Friday after being shot in the head around 4:57 p.m. Thursday in front of a home in the 700 block of Porter Avenue.
He reportedly left a Porter Avenue home to meet two men on a street corner. A few moments after he left the house, an acquaintance told police she heard three gunshots and saw Shaffer lying on the ground.
Police are also questioning a 19-year-old Youngstown man and a 16-year-old Struthers boy.
Villanueva's preliminary hearing is set for 9 a.m. Friday.
