Youngstown police investigating weekend shootings

Published: Mon, June 30, 2014 @ 12:00 a.m.

Staff report


City police are investigating two shootings that injured two people early Sunday.

Police were called to the Pizza-N-Gyro Place on Market Street about 4:30 a.m. to find Samuel Richard, 25, of Youngstown, lying in the parking lot with several bullet wounds to his chest and one in his arm. Richard was surrounded by a crowd of about 20 people, but those in the crowd told police they neither saw nor knew anything.

Richard was transported to St. Elizabeth Health Center.

Police noted that an upper-floor window of a nearby building had been shattered.

In the other incident, police were called about 3:30 a.m. Sunday to the 300 block of East Auburndale Avenue on a report of a shooting. When they got there, they couldn’t get anyone to come to the door so they forced their way in. A woman then told them that the shooting victim, Brandon Williams, 23, of Youngstown, had been taken to the hospital.

Police checked the home and found a bulletproof vest with what looked like a single bullet hole in it in the basement along with two rifle magazines and a small plastic bag of suspected heroin.

As patriotism is sorely lacking in D.C., so, it seems, is responsible citizenry in our area.

When the weather heats up outside, then people will get fired up on the inside and start bustin' caps in anything that moves. Pull the trigger first and ask questions later.

The man who was shot and a crowd of 20 people don't know anything. My question is 20 people hanging around at 4:30 on a Monday morning nobody has a job. Is there some kind of a holiday in Youngstown that we don't know about. Do the bars still close 2:30. Takes people now days 2 hours to sober up.

If you receive government assistance you should have to live with a curfew of midnight. If that person is caught breaking curfew, their assistance is suspended for two months.

The celebrating of those not bound down by employment doesn't stop at darkness nor daylight. When sleep deprived they medicate to overcome the biological clock. Killing people is a release for them. No license is required and they have plenty of guns and ammo available. Talking prison time for their actions is considered hate speech. The dream of years gone by has turned into a nightmare.
