YOUNGSTOWN 2 die in separate weekend shootings
An argument had taken place at a Steel Street bar about 20 minutes before the shooting.
YOUNGSTOWN -- The city's first and second homicides of the year took place over the weekend within hours of each other.
Angela M. Loibl, 24, of Compass West in Austintown died around 2 p.m. Saturday afternoon from a gunshot wound to the face. Loibl had been shot in the kitchen of T-N-T Bar, 702 Steel St., around 1 a.m. Saturday.
When officers arrived at the West Side bar, they were confronted by 50 to 60 people yelling and pointing them toward the kitchen. Police found the victim lying on the floor and unresponsive.
Police had been called to the bar about 20 minutes before the shooting because of a fight. The bar manager told police that at least one of the men who left after the fight returned with a gun.
As the manager left to call police, a witness saw the gunman proceed to the kitchen, then heard a gunshot. Another witness heard two shots, police said.
When the gunman walked in, patrons scattered, others dropped to the floor.
North Side: Around 9:15 p.m. Saturday, police were sent to 615 Broadway on the North Side after a woman inside the house called to report a shooting.
Anthony M. Talley, 19, of Youngstown was found dead in the driveway with a gunshot wound to the base of his skull.
Talley had gone to the Broadway house to visit his girlfriend. When she heard a knock at the door and asked who was there, she heard him say, "Ton," then a gunshot.
The woman told police that she didn't open the door or look outside until they arrived.
The officers found three men on the woman's porch, all urging her to open the door. The men told police that Talley had asked them to meet him at the Broadway house.
