Police look for man in East Side standoff, considered armed and dangerous

Published: Wed, December 14, 2011 @ 10:48 a.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — City police are searching the wooded areas and side streets of the East Side for a 50-year-old man who disrupted the quiet of his Browning Avenue Neighborhood with indiscriminate gunfire this morning.

Neighbors in the area of Browning and Stocker avenues say gunfire was heard throughout the neighborhood at 5 a.m. prompting several calls to 911. Police arrived to see a black male firing a weapon and then retreat into a home at the end of the dead end street on Browning Avenue.

Police would not identify the man, but several neighbors say he is Dennis Ray, 50, the boyfriend of a woman who owns a home on Browning Avenue.

Police from Youngstown, the SWAT team, Canfield, Boardman, YSU, along with the Youngstown Fire Department and Rural Metro surrounded the house. It was determined that Ray was no longer inside the home, so police have extended the search for Ray throughout the East Side and eventually the city.

Lt. John Kelty of the Youngstown Police Department said Ray does have an extensive criminal history and mental health issues. He said Ray should be considered armed and dangerous.

"After surrounding the home for more than five hours, they found that Ray, who is believed to have mental issues and is not taking his medication, had escaped."

@Stan... I just chuckled thinking that the guy was in a disguise or something... maybe threw on a fake mustache and a pair of sunglasses and slipped right by them...
