The suspect in a Youngstown murder could be arrested as early as today

The man who police believe killed a Boardman man and shot his brother at their family’s car-detailing shop on the South Side could be arrested as early as today, Chief Rod Foley said.

“We know where the guy is, and we know who he is,” Foley said Saturday. “We’re building a case and discussing final matters with the prosecutor. When that’s ready, we’ll get warrants.”

Elliott Stewart, 25, of Maywood Drive in Boardman was gunned down about 5:30 p.m. Friday outside Breeze Car Waxing at 3628 Southern Blvd., police said. He was shot in the chest, police said.

His brother, Derrick, 26, of Clearmont Drive in Youngstown, was shot in the hip and treated at St. Elizabeth Health Center. He was in stable condition Saturday.

The man who police say shot the brothers was across the street when Derrick Stewart asked two women arguing outside the family business to leave.

Derrick told the suspect to leave also, which made the latter angry and caused him to reach toward his side as if he had a gun, police said.

Derrick Stewart said he and the suspect talked it out, and the suspect got back into his car and began to pull away, according to police.

About that time, Elliott Stewart pulled up in his car, and the suspect started shooting at him and his brother. The suspect fled the scene after shooting the brothers.

The brothers went to the hospital in a car, and the suspect drove away while still shooting before police arrived at the scene of the crime.

I don't want to sound redundant,but if you could say when a suspect will be arrested for murder,could you also,say, Fr'instance, when that murder will take place? Might save that guy being accused of murder,the hassle of going through a tiring,& time-consuming trial,& being fed that nasty jailhouse food.Not to mention the bus fare I have to pay to get down there to watch the trial!!! hahahaha

You're right. Keep it under your hat then go in there and snatch the scumbag. Like I said before, for every arrested lowlife there are a thousand more like them waiting in the wings. So sad to see what Youngstown has become. No chief of police or mayor can stop this rolling snowball from getting bigger and bigger. Bad parenting and apathy are a good part of what is going on. So sad.

I know that the Vindy does some dumb stuff but If Foley made the statement that the Vindy printed here then Foley is the dimwit.

Stranger things have happened, but this story is near the top of the list...hopefully an arrest is made.
