A South Side man is in the hospital recuperating from a gunshot wound, but he soon may be facing criminal charges.

Cyrus Hawthorne III, 30, of East Auburndale Avenue, was rushed by ambulance to St. Elizabeth Health Center with a gunshot wound to the upper chest early Thursday. Police said the bullet wound is not life-threatening.

Police were called to the East Auburndale address just after 6 a.m. to investigate a shooting. Detective Sgt. Ron Rodway said police found Hawthorne, his girlfriend, the girlfriend’s father and the girlfriend’s 16-year-old daughter at the home.

“This appears to be a domestic situation where the shooting victim was involved in an altercation and just got physical with the girlfriend and her 16-year-old juvenile daughter. The girlfriend’s father intervened,” he said.

Rodway said the father first attempted to break up whatever altercation was taking place, but the situation escalated. The father pulled a gun and shot Hawthorne.

The detective said the bullet went through Hawthorne’s torso and did not appear to do enough damage to be life-threatening. He said doctors expect Hawthorne to fully recover.

Rodway said police are waiting for prosecutors to review the case. Until that time, charges are pending against the father.

The detective said there does not appear to be a history of violence between Hawthorne and the woman. He said the couple have been dating only for a short period of time, and Hawthorne only recently moved into the East Auburndale home with the woman.

A check of county records shows an arrest in Boardman for aggravated menacing in 2012. There also was an arrest for driving under the influence in Youngstown in 2004.

Rodway said Hawthorne likely may face some type of charges for the domestic incident involving his girlfriend and her daughter.
