Concealed carry law works, prosecutor says

WARREN — A Trumbull County assistant prosecutor says the sentencing of a 20-year-old Warren man to five years in prison for attempting to shoot a legally armed man last April shows that Ohio’s concealed carry law works.

Sirok Michael Cox Jr., 20, of 1615 Deerfield Ave. S.W. pleaded guilty Monday to felonious assault and a specification that he committed a crime with a firearm.

Assistant Prosecutor David Toepfer said Cox was shot in the arm and injured by flying glass when he pulled a gun on Martin Bonish of Youngstown Road Southeast on April 10, and Bonish fired his own gun.

Cox received his sentence in the courtroom of Judge Peter Kontos in Trumbull County Common Pleas Court.
