Police still seeking shooters in Youngstown's latest homicide

Published: Thu, April 26, 2012 @ 2:34 p.m.


Police have not made any arrests in the city’s most-recent homicide, but have collected two cars believed to be associated with the murder and are talking to witnesses.

Pierre McKinney, 21, of Mercer Avenue was gunned down Wednesday afternoon as he sat in a car in the 100 block of Saranac Avenue. McKinney managed to get out of the car and run to the rear of a house where he collapsed.

The shooters, who fired shots from another car, drove off down Saranac in a baby-blue Chevrolet Caprice with a vinyl top and chrome rims.

Capt. Mark Milstead said the investigation into the shooting is moving forward, and police do have suspects.

“We are in the process now of following up on a number of leads, and we have talked to a number of witnesses,” he said.

The shooting happened near the corner of Bryson Street, which is on the city's lower North Side.

Police questioned at least two witnesses.
