Man, 18, killed in S. Side shooting

Published: Mon, November 19, 2012 @ 12:07 a.m.

Victim found at site of double homicide in May

Staff report


City police continue to investigate the fatal shooting of an 18-year-old Youngstown man found Sunday at the same South Side house where two others were murdered six months ago.

Police were called to 240 E. Avondale Ave. about 9 a.m. Sunday for a shooting and found Tamarick D. Moore of Alameda Avenue dead inside a sport-utility vehicle, according to a Youngstown Police Department report.

Officials did not know for sure whether the shooting occurred Sunday morning or sometime late Saturday or why Moore was at the Avondale address.

Moore’s body was found in a Ford Explorer in front of the residence, according to police.

The lower portion of the duplex on Avondale was covered with boards, but the upper level appeared to be occupied.

Moore’s body was found at the same site as a double homicide in May where Juanetta Franklin and Pako Lacey, both of Youngstown, were found shot and killed inside the home.

No arrests have been made in the investigation into the deaths of Franklin and Lacey. Although the department has stated there is a person of interest in the case, there is not enough information for charges.

A neighbor who declined to give his name, said the residence has always been trouble and hopes the city tears it down.

In addition to the homicides, there was also a shooting just one block away in 300 block of East Avondale Avenue where a man was shot in the crotch after an argument.

The Youngstown Police Department has not indicated any suspect in Moore’s death, and no further information was being released Sunday night.

There are a number of vacant homes in the 200 block of Avondale, several of which are on the city’s list for demolition. That area of the South Side was targeted for demolitions after a series of killings and violence there in recent years.

Moore’s death is the 25th homicide in Youngstown of 2012. There were 22 homicides in the city at this time last year and 23 recorded for all of 2011.

Homicide rate is UP and the population is down... not good news for Youngstown. The city looks the best in my rear view mirror.

John Sweirz, Rebecca Gerson, Anthony Ferris and Youngstown Vice said all muders, mayhem, robberies, etc., would end with the shutting down of The Coconut Grove.... its been shut since 11/06/12 and the violence keeps on coming. Guess it wasn't the bar after all?

"I seriously think the problem with Youngstown is the Courts/Prosecutors office. These Thugs know they can break the Law & when arrested, they'll get break after break."....

Probem is, they're not even getting arrested! The article says that there's been no arrests made in the Franklin/lacey murders, and I bet none will be made in this one, either. IF there is an arrest, ol' "plead 'em down Paul" will make sure they don't serve too long of a sentence.

This problems started 18 years ago when a 16 girl had a baby who did not know how to take care of this baby because she was a child. This little baby was passed around and raised by grandmas and aunts who eventually lost out to the gangs on the streets for his training as a gangsta, thus a life ending bullet. The root cause of this tragedy will only end when these young women take responsibility for their actions and the government ends the guaranteed stipen that supports this merry go round.

Alright HeMyPO and Peggy, get off the the judge's and prosecutor's backs, they were all probably "Endorsed Democrats" and that means that all is good!

ps: metroman, the actual saying nowadays is "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will be gone all weekend!"

hard to feel sorry for these individuals. They put themselves in these positions. I am a lifelong Democrat but even I can see we need to do something serious about the welfare dependency system. Its completely out of hand and needs to be turned around. Unfortunately neither party wants to do anything about it. The left is afraid of losing votes, and the right goes after the wrong issues spinning their religion into everything. This leaves no one for us to vote for that can get the job done. In the meantime the criminals are running free and we are living behind locked doors and bars on our windows.

It's a shame, but you can't run from the violence of these wanna be gangstas, they are everywhere and in every city and state you go to. Not one place is immune to this. There is no escaping this violence. If you think you can find a paradise with no senseless violence let me no.

Yes Lifes2Short, you are correct that you cannot escape violence but unlike in the cities, there are some rural areas where the problem is sometimes dealt with on a individual basis without troubling the authorities.

Some of the people reading this will understand!

How many murders were committed in Greenford in the last half century, I will give you a clue, it is less then a bad weekend in Youngstown.

Another FACT there were less murders in the entire state of New Hampshire then in the City of Youngstown.

Common thread, Low black populations.

Sad but true!

I think that Ive had enough time on the southside. So many people send their kids to schools outside their district or they are home schooled. Why? Well it had to start somewhere. My daughter went to Wilson for 2 months in 8th grade & had already had the work they assigned in 5th grade.I hate this town. The teachers are there only because they cant get a job in a better place,, and the kids know it. This town will never get better. Im outta here. Do not send your kids to youngstown schools, they have been denied an education to continue on anywhere. I blame the teachers. WTH are you doing? You have no business teaching kids that you dont even like.

""""""Do not send your kids to youngstown schools, they have been denied an education to continue on anywhere.""""""

Are you serious? Have you seen what the teachers deal with on a DAILY basis? Sit in on a class one day and you wouldn't last 5 minutes. The KIDS don't want a education. You can't teach someone who don't want to learn!

""""I blame the teachers."""""""

Of course you do. That's the problem, you BLAME everyone else but your child or YOU! It's EVERYONE'S else's problem but yours. Look in the mirror and be held accountable for your kids. Quit blaming everyone and everything. It don't work no more!

That's the problem with society today, BLAME everyone but yourself. Pitiful.
