Youngstown police continue to piece together information to solve a triple homicide involving a child that happened on the city’s south side.
Youngstown Police Chief Robin Lees says his officers are working diligently to find out who shot them. He thinks they will have an answer soon.
Edward Morris, 21; Valarcia Blair, 19; and 3-month-old Tariq Morris died in the shooting. Investigators said they believe Morris was a target.
Lees said they are looking at other possible suspects in addition to Sharpe.
“I would say we have several persons of interest right now. It is a matter of eliminating some folks and looking at the details of the movements that night. We are focused and going forward. I would expect a resolution after not too long,” Lees said.
Police are still looking for witnesses or anyone who may know something
about the case.
“You may have some tidbit that you don’t think is significant, but please take some time to call the detectives and let them know because it might fit into one those pieces in that puzzle. We will take any information the public has to give us, and we are asking them to call with any information they have related to that incident,” Lees said.
