West Side man found shot to death on North Side

YOUNGSTOWN — Police continue to investigate the death of 30-year-old Dene Montgomery of 55 Wesley Ave., who was found shot to death in front of the front door of a house on the North Side Saturday evening.

A friend of Montgomery’s said he and Montgomery drove to the house at 232 Lora Ave. so that Montgomery could meet a woman. The witness saw a woman in the picture window. Montgomery went inside, and the friend heard two shots being fired, saw gun flashes and called 911 at about 9:30 p.m.

Police searched the house but didn't locate the 45-year-old resident of the home, but he arrived later and spoke to the police. The female was not located.

A gun was found next to Montgomery, who was pronounced dead at the scene.

It is not yet known whether Montgomery fired his gun, said Capt. Rod Foley of the Youngstown Police Department.
