S. Side shooting leaves man, 29, in guarded condition


YOUNGSTOWN -- A South Side man was in guarded condition Tuesday evening at St. Elizabeth Health Center after suffering a gunshot wound to his right forearm while at home earlier in the day.

After realizing he had been hit, Hood ran into his home and called for help, a report shows.
The victim's sister told officers she has a restraining order against the person suspected in the shooting, the report says.
Hood and his sister said a black semiautomatic firearm was used, according to the report.
