Felonious assault charge follows shooting


A 51-year-old Youngstown man is charged with felonious assault following an incident with his nephew.

Police arrested Keith Colvin of West Boardman Street after he told police he fired a pistol three times in the direction of his 27-year-old nephew, Curtis Brooks, Friday night.

Brooks burst though Colvin’s garage door and began choking Colvin against a wall, according to a police report.

Colvin then fired three times in Brooks’ direction.

Brooks fled on foot before his girlfriend took him to Northside Medical Center.

Brooks was last reported to be in critical but stable condition.
