Campbell man dead, juvenile wounded in Tremble Ave. shooting


An autopsy is scheduled for Monday on the body of a 20-year-old Campbell man shot about 10:15 p.m. Friday on Tremble Avenue near 13th Street, said Mahoning County coroner’s investigator Rick Jamrozik.

The victim, Anthony Harrison of Campbell, was shot once in the back, said Campbell Police Detective Sgt. John Rusnak.

Wounded in the shooting was a 17-year-old Campbell juvenile, who was transported to a local hospital for treatment of a gunshot in a leg, officials said.

The original call to police at 10:23 p.m. indicated that there was a man down in the street who had been hit by a car, Rusnak said.

However, when police arrived, they found it was a shooting and that Harrison was not breathing, he said. Several shots had been fired, he said.

Police were delayed and hampered in their investigation of the crime scene when a large number of the victim’s family and friends gathered in the street, threatened police and refused to leave, Rusnak said.
