Youngstown police release names of victims in double homicide


Police have released the names of two people found in a car shot dead on the city’s East Side overnight.

Keith Ryan Slade, 20, of Cornell Avenue and 19-year-old Keara McCulough of Clearmont Avenue were found seated in a gray Pontiac at about midnight dead of gunshot wounds on Benford Avenue.

Police are not sure if the couple were shot by the same gun or if there were multiple shooters involved in the murder. Police are also not saying if the shots were fired from a car or by someone on foot.

You want to try to be a wanna b gangsta this is what happens. And lumper your right, pretty soon the protesters will be coming out blaming everyone. Because God forbid people take accountability for there actions. Ready for the bleeding hearts to come forward. This is REAL life, not no Hollywood movie.

""Records said on May 10, 2010, Slade was shot in the stomach and hip behind Taft Elementary School. He told officers he heard gunfire, realized he was shot and drove to a friend’s home in the 500 block of E. Avondale Avenue.
Police found him bleeding in his car. Witnesses said three men approached Slade and fired shots, then fled. ""
"""About one year later, Slade and four others were arrested at Milton State Park after a fight over a basketball involving nearly 50 people.

Reports said on May 30, Slade and others began fighting over a basketball at about 4 a.m.

Nearly 25 officers from six departments were called to quell the disturbance. Police used pepper spray to apprehend some involved.

Slade eventually pleaded guilty to a first-degree misdemeanor rioting charge in Mahoning County Austintown Area Court. He served 20 days in the Mahoning County Jail.""""


At least it's been a quiet summer up to this point.

Thanks for the link. Very inspiring. I especially like the photo of the money flash and the fingers. Yes, in the ghetto, the family that flips together, gets shot together.

I wish people would get there facts right ,neither one of them were parents ,&'she was innocent no clue as to what was going on ! &'just because someone has a past doesn't mean they deserve to be killed! Regardless of what their history is doesn't justify anything. Don't be so quick to judge esp when your on the outside looking in !&'what their lifestyle is like doesn't concern anyone that's people's problems now can't mind their OWN business!!
