‘Good Samaritan’ takes shooting victim to hospital

WARREN — A gunshot victim, apparently taken to St. Joseph Warren Hospital by a “good Samaritan,” was treated for a wound to the stomach after being shot Wednesday afternoon in the 2000 block of South Feederle Drive SE.

According to a call sheet from the Trumbull County 911 Center, about 15 to 20 gunshots were heard by neighbors in the area about 2:30 p.m., with a blue Dodge Durango SUV leaving the area. Another caller to 911 reported someone outside their house at the corner of Hazelwood and Milton firing about six or seven shots as he was running toward Niles Road. The shooter, according to the 911 caller, was dressed in all black and was wearing a hat. Another caller reported someone was shooting at his truck.

A police car and ambulance arrived at the shooting scene about 2:40 p.m. to find lots of neighbors milling about and shouting.

According to police reports from the hospital, a passer-by driving a green Chevy Cavalier apparently picked up the victim and transported him to the hospital. The victim was not identified and neither was the passer-by, who told officers he could not stay at the hospital because he had to leave for work.

The officers also said hospital security personnel recovered a bullet from the victim.

Officers at the scene of the shooting reported recovering a few shell casings, the 911 report said.

About 5:15 p.m. Wednesday, police were called to the 500 block of Parkman Road SW where a 911 caller reported someone tried to shoot the caller’s 20-year-old son with a long-barreled handgun, according to police radio reports. It was not clear whether anyone was shot, but the armed man fled on foot to the backyard areas in the 1100 block of Oak Street SW, the report states.

A Warren police officer told the radio dispatcher the victim probably drove off in a black Cadillac because there was glass found in the roadway.
