Suspect in custody


A suspect in a shooting Saturday that left a man in a coma was taken into custody late Thursday at a South Side home.

Demetrius Huff, 19, of Parkwood Avenue, is in the Mahoning County jail after his arraignment Friday in municipal court on a charge of felonious assault. Magistrate Anthony Sertick set his bond at $35,000.

Huff is one of two men wanted for a shooting about 2 p.m. Saturday that seriously injured a 21-year-old man at a home in the 1000 block of Parkwood Avenue. Police said the shooting stemmed from an argument over marijuana.

Officers found Huff about 11:10 p.m. Thursday inside a home in the 100 block of West Glenaven Avenue after receiving a tip he was there.

Police are still looking for a second suspect. A criminal complaint said Huff gave a gun to another person, who then shot the victim.
