Police said the man who was killed went to confront his ex-girlfriend and her new boyfriend

CAMPBELL, Ohio (WKBN) – A man from Youngstown could appear in court as early as Tuesday following a fatal shooting early Monday in Campbell.

Charles Jennings. 28, is facing murder charges.

Police say a frantic woman called 911 about 1: 30 a.m. Monday. When officers arrived, they found 27-year-old Quincy Little, of Youngstown, shot to death inside a car parked behind a house in the 100 block of Woodland Avenue.

Police say Jennings was waiting at the house for them.

Chief Pat Kelly said Little apparently started the confrontation as Jennings and the woman were watching TV inside.

“The victim, Quincy, came over to the house and was starting to breakout the windows of Charles’ car, and that caused Charles to come outside. It escalated from there,” Kelly said.

Little and the woman had an on and off relationship over the last decade and police had been called to the house a number of times.

Court records show over the last five years, the woman requested a number of civil protection orders against Little but each was dismissed.

Little’s body wasn’t removed from the scene until around 9:15 a.m., meaning it had been there for almost eight hours.

A car with Virginia plates was towed from the backyard. One of its back windows was shattered and the front of it was damaged. It was parked at an angle like it had been driven there quickly.

There were several toys in the driveway as police were conducting their investigation.

Investigators believe that Jennings had a permit for his gun.

This is the fourth homicide of the year in Mahoning County that happened outside of Youngstown. It’s the third since September 21 and the second since Saturday.
