AUSTINTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Austintown officials confirmed Friday evening that a man who was shot outside an apartment complex has died.

Police were called about 9:50 a.m. to Compass West Drive, where they found a 32-year-old man with a gunshot wound lying outside of an apartment.

Lt. Mark Skoworn said the man was taken to St. Elizabeth Health Center in Youngstown where he later died.

“There is no respect for human life anymore,” said Estella Rhinehart, who was visiting a friend nearby. “There’s a different shooting in Warren, Youngstown, it’s sad.”

The suspect ran away before police got there, Skoworn said.

He said officers gave first aid until paramedics arrived.

Detectives also examined an SUV parked outside.
