Second shooting suspect charged

WARREN – City police arrested a second suspect in connection with the early Tuesday morning double shooting that left two men wounded, including a former local football standout.

Delquan Ware, 18, of Linda Drive N.W., was arraigned Friday in Warren Municipal Court. He, along with Kardell Lowery Jr., 18, of Maple Street S.W., remained at the Trumbull County Jail on Friday each in lieu of $300,000 bond.

Ware and Lowery are each charged with one count of felonious assault in the shooting of Davion Jonte Rogers, 22. Jamal Brandon Coleman, 20, also was wounded.

Warren Municipal Court records indicate that Lowery and Ware each are charged with shooting Rogers. However, police have not clarified whether they believe Lowery, Ware or someone else shot Coleman. They also have not said whether there are any additional suspects.

Preliminary hearings for Ware and Lowery, who was arraigned earlier this week, are scheduled Wednesday in front of Warren Municipal Judge Terry Ivanchak. Lowery was arrested Tuesday and Ware was arrested Thursday.

Rogers is known for his time playing football at Warren G. Harding High School and Youngstown State University. He and Coleman were each treated for their wounds at area hospitals.

The two were shot at their home at 2044 Ferndale Ave. S.W. around 1:45 a.m., according to Warren police reports. A witness at the house at the time of the shooting identified Rogers and Coleman as half-brothers who live with their mother. It is not clear if she was home.

Another man at the home told a Tribune Chronicle reporter that he and two other men were listening to music in another room when the shooting occurred. Witnesses also said Rogers was sleeping when he was shot.

Lowery was scheduled to appear in Trumbull County Common Pleas Court Dec. 12 for a pretrial related to his indictment earlier this year on a felony charge of carrying a concealed weapon.
