Shooting victim faces charges

A man wounded in a shooting somewhere on the South Side Sunday evening also faces drug charges after Humility of Mary Health Partners police found drugs in his clothes.

Leroy Timmogene Howell, 21, of Youngstown, faces charges in Youngstown Municipal Court of possession of drugs cocaine, possession of drugs marijuana, possession of dangerous drugs and a warrant for failure to appear on a driving under suspension charge.

He is being treated for a gunshot wound to the thigh. He was taken to St. Elizabeth Health Center by private car about 9:15 p.m.

An investigator with the department’s Internal Affairs Division is also part of the probe because Howell was shot in front of a house on the South Side where a police officer lives, said Chief Rod Foley.

Foley said the shooting does not appear to be connected in any way with the officer but IAD will help in the investigation just to make sure.

Police were called to the hospital for a report of a gunshot victim and at first Howell gave officers a false name, reports said. Other officers, however, knew who he was and after awhile he gave his identity — but said he did not know who shot him or where he was shot.

After further questioning Howell said he was shot after he found a bag on the street and tried to give it to someone, only that person shot him because they thought Howell was trying to steal the bag instead of returning it, reports said.

Foley said officers were able to learn after talking to Howell where he was shot, which is when Internal Affairs was called, Foley said. He said the shooting was on the street in front of the officer’s home.

Besides the drugs, police also found $155 in cash in his clothes, reports said.

He is expected to be arraigned in the municipal court once he is released from the hospital.

Those Doctors violated their oaths.

"All that may come to my knowledge in the exercise of my profession or in daily commerce with men, which ought not to be spread abroad, I will keep secret and will never reveal."

Hospitals should be safe zones where people can come in without fear of being arrested while seeking medical attention.

The doctor didn't call the police, hospital police called ypd. If they wouldn't have, they would be in violation. Also you can't give a fake name to the hospital. Remember Plaxico Burress?

Unless you were being tongue in cheek sarcastic

Well this shot in the leg should slow him down a bit the next time the police have to chase him. That is looking at the glass half full! http://CRIMINALLAWYERPHILADELPHIA.INFO
