YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) — The suspect in the shooting of his girlfriend last week waived his preliminary hearing in municipal court.

A Mahoning County grand jury will now hear a charge of felonious assault against Danny Duley, 45, after Judge Carla Baldwin bound the case over.

Duley has been in the county jail since he was arrested just after the Nov. 2 shooting at his home in the 1800 block of South Schenley Avenue where his girlfriend was shot in the face.

Police said the shooting happened just before 7 p.m. and was the result of an argument.

A witness who ran to the victim’s aid called the scene “traumatic.”

“Because I thought something was gonna happen to her, I said, ‘Tell me everything that happened,’ and she said that they broke up… all his stuff’s moved out, he came to drop off her son, and ‘he shot me right in front of my son.’ That’s what she said,” said Billie Anzevino.

Duley left the home before police arrived but came back and turned himself in to police. Reports said police also found a 9mm handgun in the car Duley came back in.

Police recovered a 9mm shell casing at the crime scene.

Judge Baldwin continued Duley’s $50,000 bond.
