More gunfire damage reported on West Side

YOUNGSTOWN — Neighbors living near a home in the 100 block of North Evanston Avenue on the West Side that was hit by gunfire at 1:13 a.m. Monday reported their own bullet damage later Monday. No injuries were reported in any of the police reports.

Three more police reports were filed Monday from residents of that area.

The original report came from a resident who was awake during the gunfire. That resident was going downstairs to close the front door when an unknown suspect started shooting at the house.

Nine casings of one caliber and one of another caliber were found on the street, and 32 bullet shell casings of another caliber were found “in the front porch” of a home, a Youngs-town police report states. The vehicle in the driveway had a broken back driver’s side window and a broken back windshield.

Among the new reports was one from 5:32 a.m. Monday. A resident told police they were in the bathroom and discovered that the shower had a bullet hole in it but did not see any other damage.

Another report was from 6:41 a.m. A resident flagged down a police officer and stated that overnight their car was hit by gunfire multiple times. The person said they heard gunfire overnight but “was not sure what happened.”

The person discovered the damage when they went to the car to go to work. The person also found a bullet shell casing by the end of the driveway.

A third report was made at 6:35 a.m. Monday.

That person also flagged down an officer and said someone shot into their pickup truck. The person said they heard gunfire but did not come outside, the report states.
