Woman tells cops she shot herself

YOUNGSTOWN

A woman was hospitalized after being wounded in a shooting at her LaClede Court home Saturday.

Police were called to the home in the 700 block of LaClede Court about 8:20 p.m. for a report of a woman who shot herself.

Officers arrived along with an ambulance and police roped off the home with crime-scene tape and also spoke to several neighbors while they waited for detectives to arrive. A neighbor who would not give his name said he heard two gunshots just before police arrived.

A police spokesman at the scene said investigators were questioning a man inside in his 80s who lives with the woman to see if she did shoot herself. The spokesman said she managed to tell police she shot herself, but police wanted to make sure.

The name of the woman, who the spokesman said is in her 60s, was not available late Saturday.

Man killed in crash

GREENVILLE, Pa.

Pennsylvania State Police at Mercer say a 45-year-old Jamestown man was killed in a one-car crash about 11 a.m. Friday on Kinsman Road.

Vindicator news partner 21 WFMJ-TV said the driver, Clifton Erb III, was killed after his car went off the road and traveled 350 feet before colliding with a culvert. Erb, who was not wearing a seat belt, was thrown from the vehicle.

He was taken to UPMC Horizon Greenville Campus, where he was pronounced dead.

The crash is still being investigated.
