Youngstown police probe two shooting episodes

YOUNGSTOWN — City police are investigating two shootings that occurred in the late hours of Thursday night and early morning hours Friday.

Officers were sent to a home at 529 Cameron just after 9 p.m. Thursday for a shooting that followed an argument between a group of individuals at that address.

Police reports say a group of men involved in the argument got into a car then pulled up to the house and began threatening a 21-year-old Youngstown man, who was on the porch. The men pulled off, reports say, only to return a short time later on foot and begin shooting.

The 21-year-old and a man identified only as “Dean” were wounded in the shooting. “Dean” was taken to St. Elizabeth Medical Center before police arrived. The police report, however, did not say whether Kennedy required hospitalization.

No arrests have been made in that shooting.

Just after midnight officers were called to a home in the 200 block of Pasadena for another shooting.

The 25-year-old resident of the home said he was inside the house when he heard a series of gunshots. He later learned that someone had shot the house about eight times. Reports say the shooter was likely on foot or a bicycle when the shots were fired.

No arrest has been made.
