Shooting deaths in Poland tonight

Published: Wed, May 6, 2009 @ 10:55 p.m.

POLAND — The township police and Mahoning County Sheriff’s Department are awaiting word from the county coroner’s office today on a shooting in which two people died.

Poland Township police were called to a residence in the 6000 block of Styme shortly before 6 p.m., but they gave few details this evening.

A coroner’s office report is expected Thursday.

Authorities developed a staging area at a U.S. Route 224 restaurant shortly after the shooting to begin the investigation and answer questions from reporters.

A township officer said offered no details, pending notification of next of kin.

For the full story, see Thursday's Vindicator or Vindy.com.

....get ready...classic suburban cover-up in the works. Last time PTPD ruled an "accident" when a Doctor's kid got drunk and shot and killed someone.

Sadly, victims are rarely considered when suburbanites conspire.

Bman, considering you probably can't do anything more right now to discredit yourself, you should probably realize some things. 1. The previous case you were referring to was charged the way it was based on the requests of the victim's family. #2, Styme road is not the "Poland" that everyone thinks of. It's located almost right on the PA border, and is totally different from anything else, I'm not sure of that specific road, but some places out that far do not even have plumbing.

bucnasty, although I appreciate and agree with your comments about the previous case and that Styme Rd. is different, I want you to know that we DO have plumbing on Styme Rd. Now when you comment, you too can be well informed before you say something stupid (as Bman did!). As for the current shooting, I think everyone should wait until facts come out before jumping to conclusions.

I agree with janmarsolhoh there is plumbing and maybe you should wait for the facts before you mouth off about things you know nothing about. Styme Rd is a quiet road where neighbors actually know their neighbors.

Hey worried,
I love all of the suburban bashing when something happens outside of the "city limits".
1. At least it isn't every single day!
2. I'm still not afraid to drive through Boardman, Canfield, Poland, Austintown etc.
3. At least the residents of the "suburban" areas aren't destroying their own neighborhoods.
We don't even know the facts of this case anyway, so let's not jump to conclusions.

It amazes me that references are still made about being afraid to drive in Youngstown. I moved back here five years ago, have driven South Avenue, Market Street, and Glenwood regularly and haven't been shot or stabbed or held up once. Imagine that. Am I lucky? Or is there something truly stupid about this long-term, crazed fear that runs through every Youngstown suburb?

Those of you who believe and spread this fear are tearing down the center and historical anchor of this area. Do you really think you can make it without Youngstown? Where would the new center be? Yes, Youngstown neighborhoods are in trouble, crime is a problem as in any former industrial city, but if this us vs. them attitude doesn't shift to include your core, your history, your gorgeous city park and scenic downtown, you too will fade away - or have to drive 60 miles for employment.

I don't even like to talk with suburbanites here because the fear and hatred of Youngstown is so endemic. It's the fear of small, timid, ignorant people who live by rumor instead of truth, people who would rather defend their lie than access reality, people who blame without knowing, people who go to church every Sunday and congratulate themselves on being Christian, but are willfully hateful inside. I'm so sick of this absolutely unwarranted divide.

If you want to know real danger, go to South Central LA or the Bronx. Don't fear Youngstown because it doesn't have a terrible crime problem yet. But if all you suburbs persist long enough, if you try really hard, you can create a place where only criminals can live. You can destroy this city, but you'll also be destroying yourselves.
