Warren cops kept busy

By Joe Gorman



Two shootings and a stabbing were just some of the calls that kept city police on their toes over the weekend.

A man also held police at bay briefly Sunday, and someone fired several shots at a Youngstown Road SE car wash late Saturday afternoon as several people were outside.

About 10:40 p.m. Sunday, Montrea Roberts, 23, of Union Street Southwest, was shot at a 1744 W. Market St. gas station. He was taken to ValleyCare Trumbull Memorial Hospital for treatment.

At 2:45 a.m. Sunday, Khiry Taylor, 20, of Idylwild Street, was stabbed during a large disturbance at 1994 Rodgers Ave. SE. A woman at that address told police her home was struck by several bullets during that fight. Taylor also was taken to Trumbull Memorial.

About 3:45 a.m. Saturday, police were called to 421 School St. for a disturbance, and when they got there, the people involved had left, reports said. However, a short time later, Sa’Taunt Warfield, 23, of Front Street Southwest, showed up at Trumbull Memorial with a gunshot wound to the arm.

About 6:45 p.m. Saturday, someone fired several shots at the Mega Car Wash, 2492 Youngstown Road SE, as several people were outside. Police found a spent .40-caliber shell casing. No one was injured.

A 1741 West Ave. NW man also held police at bay briefly Sunday afternoon.

Police were called to the home about 2:15 p.m. Sunday after a woman said she was in an argument with her son and he fired a shot from a gun, assaulted her and ran to an upstairs bedroom with the gun.

Police arrived and surrounded the house and blocked the area off until the man, later identified as 26-year-old Darren Lee, came out of the house about 45 minutes later.

When he was taken to the Trumbull County Jail, reports said corrections officers also found two bags of crack cocaine on Lee. He was jailed on charges of felonious assault and possession of crack cocaine. Reports did not mention if a gun was recovered.

Police reports did not provide much information, and a call to the department’s Public Information Officer, Lt. Jeff Cole, was not returned.
