Warren man shot to death on East Side

Staff report


A Warren man is dead after he was shot in the head on Youngstown’s East Side on Saturday evening.

Police found 20-year-old Tyler Simpson of Dover Street face down on the sidewalk outside 1210 Kimmel St. just before 6 p.m. He was dead at the scene.

A witness told police that Simpson was at the residence when an argument broke out among some of the people inside. The witness said a 53-year-old Campbell man pulled out a silver semi-automatic handgun and began shooting, according to a police report.

Simpson reportedly went outside, and the man followed, shooting Simpson once in the abdomen and once in the right side of the face.

Commander Doug Bobovnik said police are working on finding the suspect, but no one was in custody as of late Saturday evening.
