Suspect in shootings of Campbell family indicted

Staff report


A Campbell man who police say shot four members of his family is jailed on $1 million bond after his arraignment Tuesday in Mahoning County Common Pleas Court.

Devin N. Spann, 24, faces four counts of felonious assault with firearm specifications and eight counts of aggravated arson for a shooting and fire at a 7th Street home last month.

Spann is accused of shooting Roland Avis, 62; Mary Lynette Spann, 43; and Carmen Figueroa, 24, in their upper torsos. Gerald Robinson, 29, was shot in the forearm.

They were all treated at St. Elizabeth Health Center for their injuries.

Spann was also treated there for a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Police also accuse Spann of setting a mattress on fire in the home during the shooting.

At the time of the shooting and fire, there were three children, age 3, 6 and 8, inside the home, but they were not injured. They were crying over the victims when they were found, reports said.

Police had said Spann had hinted that he wanted to kill everyone inside the home.

He will have his first pretrial hearing in common pleas court at 1:30 p.m. next Tuesday.
