Bar patrons wounded in shooting

YOUNGSTOWN – Police are looking for a gunman who left two patrons wounded, one seriously, in a barroom shooting.

Llewellyn Nelson, 55, of Oxford Avenue, was in the intensive care unit of St. Elizabeth Health Center on Saturday.

Nelson was shot several times in the face and torso while at Soso’s Bar on North Avenue.

Another patron, Tammy Wolfe, 30, of Alameda Avenue, was shot in the left food and was taken to Forum Health Northside Medical Center. Northside would not say if she remained hospitalized or was released after treatment.

According to the police report, a tall man who is not a regular at Soso’s walked in late Friday night and walked up to Nelson, who was sitting at the bar.

There was very little or no conversation between the two men when the gunman opened fire with a semi-automatic pistol. The assailant stood over Nelson and continued firing.

Wolfe told police she was sitting on the barstool next to Nelson talking to someone else when the shooting began.

She got up and ran outside, where she realized she was shot in the foot. She was taken to the hospital by a family member.

Police found one slug and four spent shells inside the bar.
