WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) — Warren police are investigating a murder in the city Friday afternoon.

A 911 caller walking by said they found a man shot dead in the driveway of an abandoned home in the 2100 block of Colonial Street around 4 p.m.

Police are not identifying the victim at this time.

They had to call back-up from three other departments to help with crowd control. They were worried that the over 100 family members and spectators who gathered would contaminate the crime scene.

Police cleared the scene around 6:30 p.m.
