Shooting victim recovering and suspect in custody

YOUNGSTOWN

A 20-year-old man is expected to fully recover after being shot while riding in a car on the city’s South Side, and his alleged shooter is in police custody.

According to police, the ShotSpotter program used to indicate gunfire in the city picked up a gunshot in the area of Judson near Market just before police received a call about a man shot in the back in the same area. The shot hit the 20-year-old victim in the back.

The victim was taken to St. Elizabeth Health Center where he was treated for a graze wound to the back.

Police took a 21-year-old man into custody for the shooting, which appears to have been over an argument with the alleged shooter’s girlfriend, but formal charges have not been filed.
