Police: Man dies after Youngstown shooting
YOUNGSTOWN - A man shot on a North Side street died Saturday afternoon of his injuries.
Mark Haskins, 57, who was shot Oct. 17, died at St. Elizabeth Health Center, said Chief of Detectives Capt. Mark Milstead.
His death is the city's 22nd homicide of the year.
Police were called after someone fired several shots at Haskins at the corner of Kensington and Bissell avenues on Oct. 17.
Milstead said investigators think Haskins, of Norwood Avenue, had an argument with someone before he was shot.
Last year, Youngstown had 24 homicides.
Police: Gun, ammunition found on suspect
WARREN - Police found a semiautomatic handgun and a magazine loaded with seven rounds of ammunition while answering a disturbance call late Monday evening.
Randall Evans, 29, of Vienna Avenue in Niles, was arraigned in Municipal Court Tuesday for two charges of aggravated menacing and carrying a concealed weapon.
He has a $7,500 bond and is due back in court Oct. 30.
Police were called to a report of a disturbance at 408 Chestnut St. about 11 p.m. and saw a man run behind the house when they pulled up a couple of houses away.
Officers managed to chase the man later identified as Evans and caught him. He kept reaching into his sweatshirt as police questioned him and he was handcuffed later as officers searched and found a 9mm Smith & Wesson with one bullet near the garage and a magazine of ammunition with seven rounds at another part of the garage.
A man inside the home said Evans pointed a gun and ordered him to leave. The woman who called 911, Tanisha Lightning, 33, said Evans demanded to know who she was seeing and then pointed a gun at her.
Evans was taken to the Trumbull County Jail, as was Lightning when it was found she had two outstanding warrants.
