Two hit by gunfire in weekend Warren incidents


Two people were hit by gunfire, and four others were robbed at gunpoint in two other weekend incidents.

The first shooting took place at 5:20 a.m. Sunday on Oak Circle Southwest.

A 68-year-old Ford Avenue Northwest man went to the Warren police station, where he reported being shot by a 38-year-old Oak Circle resident.

The victim was taken to St. Joseph Health Center by ambulance.

Police were first notified of a shooting at the suspect’s house, and officers questioned the suspect and a 51-year-old woman on Oak Circle. The woman told police she and the victim had been riding around in a car together, but she got out of the car on Oak Circle because they had been arguing.

The woman said she went to the suspect’s house, talked to him, then heard gunshots.

A Warren police office found spent bullet casings in the suspect’s driveway, so the suspect and woman were detained for questioning.

The condition of the victim was not immediately available Monday.

In the other shooting, a 48-year-old Risher Road Southwest man reported being shot in the leg while inside the Powerhouse Bar, 999 Mahoning Ave. at 10:08 p.m. Sunday.

The victim was taken by ambulance to ValleyCare Trumbull Memorial Hospital after police found him in the bar’s parking lot screaming. He told police the name of the person who shot him.

The victim said the suspect approached him in the bar and asked if the victim knew him. The victim said he did not.

The suspect then head-butted the victim and shot him in the left leg just above the knee.

The victim’s condition was not immediately available Monday.
