One shooting was on the city's South Side, and one was on the East Side.
YOUNGSTOWN -- Two men were in critical condition at St. Elizabeth Health Center after separate shootings Friday afternoon.
Charles L. Coleman Jr., 43, of Idora Avenue was shot in the left side of his abdomen about 3 p.m. Friday.
Police arrested 49-year-old Dorian L. Duckworth of West Warren Avenue on a charge of felonious assault in the shooting.
According to reports, the two men argued, then fought, in the driveway outside Coleman's home. A witness said she saw Duckworth, who is also known as Dorian Hill, pull what appeared to be a sock from his pocket, put his hand inside it and shoot Coleman with a handgun that was in it.
Police found Coleman lying on a bed inside his house. Duckworth was arrested at his home about two hours later.
Second shooting
Also in critical condition Friday was 17-year-old Tory M. Holcomb of Pineview Avenue, who was shot during an apparent drive-by shooting on the city's East Side.
Reports indicated that Holcomb and Jawaylin Hudson, 16, of McGuffey Road, were walking along McGuffey shortly after 2 p.m. when two men in a dark-colored car pulled up and fired several shots at them.
Holcomb was shot in the right leg, and Hudson was shot in his right foot, according to police reports. Hudson was in stable condition.
