YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Youngstown police have confirmed a 21-year-old man has died after a shooting on the North Side.
Police responded around 6:30 p.m. Thursday to the 20 block of New York Avenue, right off of Logan Avenue.
Police say there was some kind of dispute that led to five to seven shots being fired, and the suspect took off. When police arrived, the victim had already been taken to the hospital, where shortly later he was pronounced dead.
Police searched a car parked near the evidence markers with its doors open and they had the street blocked off for some time while they investigated.
At this time, the victim’s identity has not been released.
Police recovered five shell casings on the road. They do not have a suspect at this time but were talking to witnesses at the scene.
This is the city’s 18th homicide, 17 of which were results of gun violence. Last year at this time, the city was at 25 homicides.
Police are asking anyone with information to call
