Warren police still probing shooting
WARREN - Detectives on Friday had not made any arrests in a Thursday evening shooting at 1553 Transylvania Ave. S.E.
Robert Williamson, 25, who lives at the address, has been released from a local hospital after treatment for a bullet wound to his left bicep.
Officers said he was shot about 6 p.m. through a front glass storm door in his apartment. Police recovered the bullet that shattered the glass, went through Williamson's arm and bounced off an interior wall in his home. Also recovered was a shell casing from a .380-caliber handgun.
Witnesses first told police they thought the shooter was a neighbor who was upset about Williamson reprimanding youngsters who were climbing on a fence outside his home.
But detectives said later it was determined that the attacker did not live near the victim.
