'Family feud' led to fatal shooting at South Side home, police say



Published: Thu, August 11, 2005 @ 12:00 a.m.



Wednesday's killing was the third homicide in the city this week, the 21st of 2005.

YOUNGSTOWN -- A South Side man was in Mahoning County jail late Wednesday in the shooting death of his brother.

The victim, Harold Schuler, 40, of 37 Cleveland St., was found shot to death outside 83 Falls Ave., about 5 p.m. Wednesday.

His brother, Elbert W. "Sam" Schuler, 42, of the same Cleveland Street address was arrested later.

Police Capt. David Williams described the shooting as a "family feud" and said the weapon involved was a .38-caliber revolver.

A police report said the shooting "followed an argument." Williams didn't know why the victim was at the Falls Avenue home where he was found.

A coroner's office representative pronounced the victim dead at the scene, according to a police report.

Schuler's death is the third homicide in the city this week, and he is the city's 21st homicide victim of the year. At this time last year there were 13 homicides.

Michael S. Olenik Jr., 28, of Thalia Avenue, was shot to death around 10:45 p.m. Monday in his car at East Federal and East Boardman streets downtown.

On Sunday, the body of Sierra Y. Slaton, 19, of Vestal Road, was found floating in McKelvey Lake on the East Side around 6:30 p.m., shot once. Police are investigating her death as a homicide.
