West Side shooting results in arrest

Staff report


Police took a Campbell woman accused of firing a gun at a woman on the city’s West Side into custody early Friday.

The victim told police Stephanie McPeters, 33, of Jean Street, and a man approached her about 2 a.m. in the driveway of a North Hartford Avenue home with hoodies pulled over their faces.

McPeters told the victim, “You will all die. I will shoot this [expletive] up,” according to a report.

The victim yelled for people inside to call police, and McPeters fired three shots at the woman and she and the man ran away, the report said. Police apprehended McPeters near the intersection of Connecticut and Rhoda avenues where she initially provided them with a false name.

She continued to threaten the victim in the cruiser on the way to the Mahoning County jail, the report said.

Police quoted McPeters as saying: “When I get out, I’m going to [expletive] her up,” and, “I am a thug, and I know how to use a gun.”

She faces charges of felonious assault and obstructing official business.

The report did not detail what happened to the man.
