Seeking shooting suspect

YOUNGSTOWN — Anyone with information about the whereabouts of Jason Delgado, 25, is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (330) 746-CLUE.

Delgado is wanted on warrants charging him with murder and three counts of felonious assault.

Ricardo P. Moctezuma, 25, of Burlington Avenue was shot to death around 1:50 a.m. Saturday outside the El Tropical bar on Poland Avenue after an argument inside the business, police said.

Capt. Kenneth Centorame, chief of detectives, said detectives are also searching for a person of interest in the homicide.

Smoke grenade found

YOUNGSTOWN — The police department bomb squad was called to the 500 block of South Hazelwood Avenue on the West Side around 9:15 p.m. Sunday to remove what appeared to be a discharged military-type smoke grenade, police said.

The device was found on the grass and taken away.

Suspect hospitalized

YOUNGSTOWN — Steve Simpson was arrested after a stabbing at his Garfield Street home but not accepted at the Mahoning County jail because his blood pressure was not at an acceptable level, police said.

Simpson, 53, was then taken to St. Elizabeth Health Center. He was in serious condition Monday. Once released, he is expected to be arraigned in municipal court on a charge of felonious assault.

Police who responded to the stabbing Saturday night found Zina Wright, no age given, who had lost a lot of blood from a wound to the left side of her chest. Wright, who also lives at the Garfield address, identified Simpson as the one who stabbed her with a steak knife.

Wright was in satisfactory condition at the hospital Monday.
