YOUNGSTOWN — Police made three arrests after a half-hour foot pursuit for suspects involved in a shooting of a man on Canfield Road about noon.

Police converged on the area immediately after the shooting and saw the suspected shooter and another man in a Chevrolet Impala on Indianola Avenue near Colfax. Both men jumped out of the car and began to run. The woman, who police said was the driver, was stopped on the South Side near Indianola.

One of the men was arrested about 12:15 p.m. near a gas station on the South Side. Police caught other man on Sherwood Avenue. Police said the shooting culminated an armed robbery of the victim in which personal items, including a cellphone, was taken.

There is no word on the victim’s condition, but initial reports said he had been shot in the leg.

I can't believe people think this is a normal way to live. Like they wake up in the morning and plan to go rob somebody.

Canfield Road, or Route-62, is actually not "inda hood". It is the stretch of road between Youngstown's upper West Side/Cornersburg and the city of Canfield.

I wish we could just remove the bridge over Mill Creek Gorge at the Old Mill. Then a little more effort would be required to get to Cornersburg....or make a get-away.

Was killing where the intruder was recently killed by his former friend also in the hood? It seems to me that crime has no designated boundries.

The majority of homicides are in the hood. In Youngstown and every city. Like it or not, they are. Can't deny that.

This one is all about Drugs.

How do you explain the Mafia days in Youngstown during the past? Bombing cars was a favorite. In the past Joey Naples had a house on Fifth Ave. that was bombed. The Cafaro office building on Belmont suffered a blast also. What was that all about? How about the Irish riots in New York City in the past? How about the Stonewall riots in New York? I see that lots of hoods had turmoil.

Your talking about the past. It's over, more forward. The past is over. No one can change it or do anything about it. This is 2012 soon to be 2013. There's a whole new breed of wanna be gangstas now.

Fred ,the last homicide in Boardman was in 2004--crime has NO boundaries but homicide is much more prevalent in certain areas--the population of Youngstown is not much higher than Boardman but the homicide rate is much higher.
