Two injured in shooting on South Side near St. Dom’s
Two people were wounded in a shooting at Hilton Avenue and Southern Boulevard — less than 1 mile from where 74-year-old Thomas Repchic was shot and killed Sept. 25.
A 40-year-old Youngstown woman was hit in her upper right arm and a 24-year-old male, also from Youngstown, was struck in the right buttock and right groin area in the parking lot of 3602 Southern Boulevard around 6 p.m. Sunday.
Both told police that a large group of men and women were fighting in the intersection. The woman left her Hilton Avenue home, and the man parked his car to see what was happening.
When they turned back, both heard gunfire and were wounded.
Officials said they do not believe the injuries to the two were serious. Both were taken to St. Elizabeth Health Center for treatment.
