28-year-old dies after being shot in leg

Published: Fri, June 18, 2010 @ 12:41 a.m.


A man shot in the leg Thursday afternoon has become the city’s latest homicide victim.

The identity of the 28-year-old man hasn’t been released, pending notification of family.

Police were called about 4:30 p.m. to a house in the 300 block of West Chalmers Avenue for a shooting.

They found the victim in an upstairs bedroom with two gunshot wounds to the leg and a cut under his eye. The man, who didn’t live at the West Chalmers home, told police that he didn’t know who shot him.

He was taken to St. Elizabeth Health Center, where he later died.

Another man at the house told police that he let two men into the house, and one held him at gunpoint. After both intruders went upstairs, the man heard gunshots, he told police.

Bull crap,you let someone into the house, did u even know who it was , u held @ gun point and the other guy gets shot. Now that's work the police need to work on. People always get shot and say they don't know who did it. I think they were into something they should not have been. A blind man saw that bull

Indeed there was drugs involved, the guy upstairs was shot, his stash was taken, and the guy at the door who let the thugs in got his share of the loot. Case solved.

"After both intruders went upstairs, the man heard gunshots, he told police."

Why didn't he call 911 right away when they went upstairs or try to get help?

lifes2short has obviously had his/her heart turned around since last weeks comments. (hopefully) I expected to see a "he deserved it " comment.

"The man, who didn’t live at the West Chalmers home, told police that he didn’t know who shot him."

The police are hated and the culture is protected . Soulmates of the culture relish every moment of their action filled lives . If the shooting was no big deal to the victim then it was an accepted part of who he was .

That was murder,..

I don't know the individual, assailants or any of the details in regards to how or why the confrontation took place.

Thus I'm certainly not going to revel in him having lost his life either. My condolences goes out to his surviving family and friends.

But from the details being expressed in the writeup. It reeks of a setup where for whatever reason the deceased was targeted and setup via a orchestrated / planned robbery or retaliation for a debt.

Where by pattern if it were robbery if one was shot the other certainly doesn't live and those shots wouldn't have been fired in the leg.

Where for the deceased to have received two gun shots to the legs and a facial scar. It indicates it was possibly intended as a severe warning that went awry.

See no way does somebody / anybody just let some unknown[s] in and they go upstairs shoot their friend. Before being allowed to come back downstairs and leave without resistance,.. or identification.

Where be it by intent or not it's now ended up as murder in conjunction with an apparent assault. Where the deceased was likely beaten via the cut reported underneath one of his eye's and shot at sometime throughout the ordeal.

The placement of the shots in lower extremities signifies an intent to more immobilize than execute instant murder.

Where with all the apparent hush-hush and witnesses refusal to give details. It sounds as though they're either accomplices pleading the 5th as a defense.

Or dealing with somebody they know of and are too terrified to tell on.

Either way it's a shame a life has been lost and nothing goods ever came from survivors thinking something so situational will blow over without incident.

In presumptive reconstruction. Via what's written it appears that after the assault. The victim was possibly left to have bled so long. His organs started shutting down from blood loss and lack of oxygen.

I'm sure the detectives working this case has the same intuitive instinct and more background on all involved to get to the bottom of this.

"After BOTH intruders went upstairs, the man HEARD gunshots, he told police."

What part is so hard to understand? The article don't say ONE intruder went upstairs, it says BOTH and the man HEARD gunshots, if he was with them, he would have SEEN it.
Not that hard to comprehend, is it?

Life in The Hood places little value on life itself . Drugs and a persons reputation for being a bad dude takes precedence .

Very distinct,..

" HOUSE FIRED UPON, GUN FOUND INSIDE - UNLOADED AND EVERYBODY CLAIMS THEY HAVE NO IDEA IT WAS THERE OR WHO HAD IT ",.. the home owner should have been apprehended to make them talk.

See where the physical address is irrelevant in regards to detecting whats gone on there. You can't sensibly even try to give a damn about anyone that clearly doesn't care about themselves.

Which their sudden change of demeanor and clam up conduct was clearly no one wanting to take ownership of the no doubt stolen gun for starters,.. ballistics has to be ran on it to trace possible associated crimes.

Their change of demeanor possibly / likely even included a recollection of possessing stolen goods somewhere throughout the place and possibly drugs and outstanding warrants they feared the patrolmen would find and or track back on ID call / check,.. if nobody was taken in that was terrible police work.

Where those numerous shots fired into the dwelling aside. Because the shooters had already left the scene and apparently nobody's willing to cooperate.

But for public safety law enforcement should immediately place the dwelling on the hot watch surveillance list. There's no telling what they'll snare and you can bet whatever it is and who they are it's conclusively criminal.

Because it's now without question those that would call themselves either existing or frequenting a dwelling sheltering such a character of individuals[s]. Would play host and or hideout for troublesome liabilities and nuisances and or menaces to society.

Where they may or may not know who fired the salvos that rattled them enough to call the police. But by displayed conduct and occurrence those are guilt ridden criminals in that dwelling.

Whom by demanding a warrant aren't without fault and are clearly posturing as casualties awaiting their morgue checkout or penitentiary check in dates.

The only thing one can sensibly hope is they don't get any innocent person gunned down getting mixed up in it via crossfire.

The sad thing is before their corpse[s] are tagged and identified. With their chance to be, do, think and live better than they do. They opt for thinking it's a game or cool to be at odds with others that will take up arms against them and go about their existences firing on one another.

They're beneath savages because savages normally have reason to to act out in the wild. However, you can bet it's over something idiotic that they did to someone and with their living on Florida in inner city Youngstown.

The crime they commit and the chances they took and take bears no comparison to valuing life if they had a clue as to knowing what it's really all about.

Thank you diamondm35. This young man was our neighbors' son. This is a terrible tragedy. He was a fine young man. I am disgusted with those people who have no compassion!
