Shootout on Logan Avenue in Warren results in charge, minor injuries

Staff report


Carlos Davis III, 18, of Logan Avenue Southeast is in the Trumbull County jail in lieu of $375,000 bond after he and a 27-year-old man exchanged gunfire on Logan Avenue on Monday night.

Police said the 27-year-old victim, of Logan Ave Northeast, was at Market Food Mart, at the corner of Logan and East Market Street, with another man at 9:10 p.m. when a male, later identified as Davis, drove up to the store entrance on a minibike.

Words were exchanged between the victim and Davis.

Davis left for a short time, then returned with two other men and began shooting a gun at the victim’s truck as the victim left the store parking lot.

Two bullets hit the truck, one apparently narrowly missing the victim’s head, police said.

The victim drove a short distance on Logan, parked his truck at his house and got out.

Davis approached him with a gun, so the victim advised Davis he also had a gun.

Davis started shooting again, so the victim, who has a concealed carry license, fired back between three and five times.

The victim suffered cuts to his face from broken glass in the truck, but neither man was hit by the gunfire, said Lt. Jeff Cole of the Warren Police Department.

The victim was treated at the scene for what police called an “apparent minor injury.”

The victim and another witness identified Davis as the shooter, police said.

A not-guilty plea was entered for Davis to felonious assault Tuesday in Warren Municipal Court.

The judge ordered him to have no contact with the victim.

Market Food Mart is the same store that was robbed Sunday night by two masked men who took phones and jewelry from two clerks but forgot a bag of money on the counter.
