Alleged robber killed at Galaxy Seafood identified



Published: Sat, April 9, 2011 @ 11:25 p.m.

Youngstown

The man shot and killed by an off-duty police officer Friday evening has been identified by the Mahoning County Coroner’s office as Warren V. Wright, 32, according to Vindicator broadcast partner WFMJ TV-21.

Several calls to the coroner, Dr. David Kennedy, went unreturned tonight.

Wright, of Youngstown, was killed around 6:30 p.m. Friday after he entered Galaxy Seafood on Belmont Avenue and pointed a gun at a worker.

The off-duty officer, who was working security at the restaurant and has yet to be identified by police, approached the suspect and shots were exchanged, Capt. Rod Foley said Friday night.

Youngstown Mayor Jay Williams told The Vindicator late tonight that Youngstown Police Department hasn’t officially released the suspect’s name, pending further corroboration from the coroner’s office.

City police plan to release a statement either Sunday or Monday, he said.

If it is an alleged robber, then it should be alleged that the cop shot him. Screw you Vindy! Your reporting is crap! The guy tried to rob the place. No alleged about it.

Once again, gives TRUE meaning to the phrase "gun control:" two hand grip, sight down the barrel, slowly squeeze the trigger. Kudos!
