Warren man, woman suffer gunshot wounds

Staff report


A 34-year-old Deerfield Avenue man suffered two gunshot wounds at Parkman Road and Pearl Street late Wednesday.

A 24-year-old man was arrested, but police later said they don’t believe he was involved in the shooting.

While responding to a report of gunshots fired and three black males running through yards at 11:25 p.m., a Warren police officer saw two black men walking on nearby Oak Street and questioned them.

One of the men, Antonio T. Torres, of Highland Avenue Southwest, told the officer he had a handgun in the waistband of his shorts and drugs in his pocket, which the officer removed.

Shortly thereafter, police learned that a gunshot victim had gone to ValleyCare Trumbull Memorial Hospital.

At the hospital, police learned that the 34-year-old man and a 26-year-old Harvard Drive Southeast woman were fired upon. Police said they were unable to learn how badly hurt the man was. The woman had only cuts from flying glass.

When contacted Wednesday, the hospital said the victim was not a patient there.

On Wednesday in Warren Municipal Court, Judge Thomas Gysegem entered innocent pleas for Torres on felony charges of being a felon in possession of a firearm, carrying concealed weapons and two counts of felony drug possession.
