Man, 28, nabbed in New Year’s Day shooting

YOUNGSTOWN — A Youngstown man has been arrested in Boardman in connection with a New Year’s Day shooting, but he initially gave officers a fake name. When law enforcement realized they found Allen G. Torres, 28, they discovered he was wanted on a felonious assault warrant out of Youngstown in connection to a Jan. 1 shooting on Hubbard Road.

Boardman police and deputies at the Mahoning County jail notified Youngstown police after discovering who Torres was by comparing fingerprints and other information, according to a Youngstown police report.

Torres was charged in Youngstown Municipal Court with felonious assault Jan. 5, according to court records.

It is unknown when Torres will be arraigned. If he is convicted of felonious assault, he could receive a sentence of about eight years in prison.

The initial Youngstown police report did not provide many details, stating only that officers were sent to 2139 Hubbard Road for a shooting. The building there was at one time a tavern. Officers were dispatched at 12:18 a.m.

Torres was booked into the county jail Tuesday, according to jail records.

Torres lived on Market Street on the South Side in 2021 when he was indicted on two felony escape charges. In March 2022, he was sentenced to nine months in prison after he pleaded guilty to one of the counts. He also was placed on two years of post-release control or parole.
