Warren neighbors argue over Trump, one man injured


WARREN — An argument between two men Tuesday night over President Donald Trump turned into a confrontation with a shotgun and the gunman being injured as the other man took the gun away.

Fred T. Dickson, 58, of Southern Boulevard Northwest told police he was across the street at his neighbor’s house talking to him and the neighbor’s friend about cars, but the conversation turned to the president.

Dickson said he told the neighbor’s friend, John S. Cope Jr., 30, of West Market Street he was “not a big fan” of Trump, which triggered an argument about 8 p.m.

Dickson said he went back to his home to put his car in the garage, but he got his shotgun and went back to the neighbor’s house.

One of the two males “grabbed the shotgun,” which caused Dickson to fall on a child’s playpen, striking his face on it, Dickson said.

The fall caused a cut between Dickson’s eyes, a bruise on his forehead and abrasions on his elbow and both shins, but Dickson refused medical treatment.
