Man to be charged in Warren standoff during TV reposession

Published: Wed, October 31, 2012 @ 12:04 a.m.

Staff report


Police plan to charge a man in his early 20s who held police at bay for 40 minutes Monday afternoon at a house in the 100 block of Kenmore Avenue Northeast.

Police were called to the home, which is just off of East Market Street, after a 44-year-old Youngstown woman reported that the man fired a gun at her from inside the house at 2:28 p.m.

The woman said she had gone to the house to repossess a television for Vernon’s Sales & Rental on Youngstown Road and talked with a male inside who would not give her the television, so she threatened to file a complaint with the court.

As the woman was backing up in her van, she heard a gunshot and saw something hit her van windshield near her face. Then she heard several more projectiles hitting the van and saw a man holding a gun out of the upstairs window.

Police blocked off roads in the area while trying to talk to the suspect over a megaphone and on the telephone. Detective Doug Hipple was called to the scene to serve as negotiator.

No injuries were reported. The weapon used was later determined to be a pellet gun, said Sgt. Jeff Cole, a police spokesman.

The man was released to his family.

But did she get the TV? Stories like this make me chuckle. If you rent it you have to pay for it. Aaron's knocks on my neighbors door every day. He just never answers.
