Youngstown police working homicide leads

Police say information from the public about the weekend double homicide was sketchy, but information has been coming in and detectives are working those leads.

Oscar Teague of Wirt Street, 56, and Jasmon Reeder, 19, of Superior Street, were killed early Saturday in Teague’s North Side home. There were reportedly no witnesses to the double murder, and police have not made an arrest.

Police Capt. Rod Foley said people were reluctant to come forward and speak with officers about the crime. He said police, in the first 24 hours after the bodies were discovered, had little information to go on, but calls concerning the murders are beginning to filter through the police hot line — 330-746-CLUE (2583).

“We are definitely starting to get some people calling in now. ... The detectives are out chasing down that information,” Foley said.

One potential witness stopped an officer and gave a description of the man the witness said is responsible for the fatal shootings. The shooter was described as a 24-year-old, tall, slim black man who drives a gold SUV and may have been doing drugs in the house before the shooting. The witness also offered police a nickname for the man.

Police responded to Teague’s home after getting a call about gunfire coming from that house and a red SUV leaving the driveway. The front door was open when police arrived.

The two victims were found in the living room with Reeder on his side on top of Teague’s legs, and Teague face up.

Reeder, shot in the head, died at the house.

Teague, shot in the back, had a pulse when emergency medical personnel came to the house. He later died, however, at St. Elizabeth Health Center.

Meanwhile, Delord Green, arrested immediately after the shooting death of 17-year-old Braylen Collins of West Glenaven two weeks ago, may be released from Mahoning County jail pending the outcome of his case after a municipal court judge lowered his bond Monday afternoon.

Green is charged with tampering with evidence and discharging a weapon in the city limits. He is not charged with shooting Collins.

Green appeared with his attorney Paul Conn before Judge Robert Milich of Youngstown Municipal Court for a preliminary hearing. He waived his right to have that hearing, but did enter into a mutual agreement with city prosecutors to lower his bond from $100,000 to $15,000 and an order that he be placed on electronically monitored house arrest.

Police found Collins lying on the living-room floor of a Summer Street home. He had been shot in the chest. Collins was taken to St. Elizabeth, where he was pronounced dead.

Shonqualin Hendrix, 15, is charged with shooting Collins and was arraigned last week in juvenile court. He is due back in that court for another hearing next month.

Yes I meant the ATF:

After all, didn't this criminal use a gun?

Surely the fool didn't have it registered.
How many guns are on the streets of this town stolen, legal... whatever?

Guess?

/ may have been doing drugs in the house before the shooting. /

Imagine that. I told everyone that the deceased were drug involved.

Question I have is what is the relationship between the 56 year old and 19 year old deceased... Seems like an odd couple.

Typically this sort of execution is reserved for the 13-30 group, not a 56 year old.

As for Delord Green being let out of jail, what are the idiots running Mahoning County thinking?!?!?! This a--hole should have still been in jail for his car theft felony from February. Whatever bond he was out on her VIOLATED by being involved in another FELONY case.

Why doesn't Delord Green's current charges show up in the County Court system online? More issues with the public data being inconsistent.

There is no problem with the public data. Delord's charges are not showing up in the county system because he has not been indicted and arraigned at the county level. His charges are still at the city level. Once he is indicted, and since he waived his right to a preliminary hearing he will be arraigned, you will see those charges in the county system almost immediately.

Perhaps we are being too harsh on drug users . Under the influence sounds like a logical defense to me . . .. We may be developing a hateful society with our intolerance . Our jail is now full with the bitter ones .
