Bond $300,000 for man charged in Warren shooting

Staff report


Kardell Lowery Jr., 18, is being held in the Trumbull County Jail in lieu of $300,000 bond on one count of felonious assault in the Tuesday morning shooting of Davion J. Rogers, 22.

Bond was set after his arraignment Wednesday in Warren Municipal Court.

Though Warren police have refused to discuss any details of the case, court records indicate Lowery, of Maple Street Southwest, is charged with shooting only Rogers, of 2044 Ferndale Ave. SW.

He is not charged with shooting the other victim, Jamal B. Coleman, 20, also of the Ferndale address.

When asked Tuesday and Wednesday whether there is more than one suspect in the case, Lt. Jeff Cole, public-information officer and officer in charge at the Warren Police Department, said that was “under investigation.”

Lowery was arrested without incident at 5:45 p.m. Tuesday at a home in the 1900 block of Wick Street Southeast and taken to the Trumbull County Jail.

An innocent plea was entered for him in Warren Municipal Court. His next hearing is at 10:15 a.m. Wednesday.

Coleman was taken to St. Elizabeth Health Center after the 1:44 a.m. Tuesday shooting, but he was later discharged. Rogers was taken to ValleyCare Trumbull Memorial Hospital, but the hospital had no record of him Wednesday.

A Warren police report said both men suffered a “major injury.”

Rogers was a standout football player at Warren G. Harding High School who played football one year — the fall of 2011 — for Youngstown State University. Rogers started 10 of 11 games at linebacker as a red shirt freshman but left the program after the fall semester. He finished sixth on the team in tackles in 2011.
