Poland teen injured in shooting

YOUNGSTOWN -- A Poland teen was in stable condition in St. Elizabeth Health Center Saturday night with gunshot wounds to a foot and arm.
Timothy Overman, 18, of Shetland Lane, told police he was shot on Youngstown's South Side late Friday night. He said he was smoking marijuana at an unspecified location around 11 p.m. when a man called "Tommy" picked him up in a car and said he was going to deliver marijuana. The driver stopped at an unspecified location, and four men approached the car and began shooting, Overman said, noting he felt his ankle go numb.
Overman said he took a gun out of the car and shot back before running into nearby woods.
Overman said he ran until he felt dizzy, then sat down. A man picked him up, took him to a home, gave him Vicodin, and said he was going to call a doctor.
Overman said he passed out. When he woke up around 10:30 a.m. Saturday, his clothes, jewelry and $135 in cash were missing. He found a phone and called a friend to pick him up.
The friend told police he found Overman standing outside of a bar with a towel wrapped around his arm, wearing only boxer shorts.
