Youngstown police probe East side shoot-out

YOUNGSTOWN — Police are investigating a shoot-out at an East Side convenience store this afternoon.

Based on interviews with witnesses, police said two men walked into the Lansdowne Red & White Super Market on Lansdowne Boulevard around 1:30 p.m. with at least one of them shooting at two men already inside the store.

At least one of the two men already inside the store returned fire, police said.

Also, at least six shots were fired in the store, said a man, who works at the Red & White and was inside it on his day off when the incident occurred.

One of the four males could have been shot, but police couldn’t say that with certainty.

When officers arrived, all four were gone.

As for a motive, witnesses said it’s possibly a dispute related to the disappearance of David Jackson, 26, a Youngstown man missing since Friday.
