UPDATE: Fatal shooting tonight during supposed phone sale


City police are investigating a homicide that happened on the 700 block of Sherwood Avenue at about 7 p.m.

Two people went to a house to sell a couple phones to a buyer they contacted through the internet. When they arrived, two people came from the front porch, robbed the sellers, and fatally shot a male victim.

The two suspects fled on foot.

The house they were in was later discovered to be vacant.

This is the third homicide in Youngstown this year.
