Gun found near Youngstown man cited for walking, dancing in the street

YOUNGSTOWN — Police found a stolen, loaded semiautomatic pistol Monday on a South Side street near a man who was cited for walking in the street and obstructing official business.

Officers spotted 18-year-old Marquis Dates of East Dewey Avenue in front of a home in the 100 block of East Avondale Avenue about 7:20 p.m. walking and dancing in the street.

Police stopped him because walking in the street is not allowed unless the sidewalk is not passable. Reports said Dates also gave officers a fake name.

Police also found a loaded .25-caliber handgun near him, but Dates was not charged because they could not link the weapon to him. A records check showed the gun was stolen last year, reports said. Officers took the gun for evidence.
