Police: Gunmen shot each other
YOUNGSTOWN - Police believe that the victims of a double homicide in Youngstown killed each other in a shootout Thursday night.
The victims were identified Friday morning as Charles Moore, 23, and Marquell McLane, 27. The shooting happened in the 1400 block of Willow Court in the Rockford Village housing complex on the East Side.
McLane was found lying face-up near a trash container in the side yard of 1459 Maplewood Court, according to a police report. Moore's body was found in the driver's seat of a green Chevy Malibu parked in front of nearby 1465 Dogwood Lane, police said.
Moore was supposed to be sentenced on gang-related charges next week, according to Tribune Chronicle news partner WYTV 33 News. He was accused him of being a member of the drug-dealing street gang "Vic Boys."
McLane was twice charged with carrying a concealed weapon, and served sentences of one year of community service the first time and six months in prison the second time, according to court records.
Guardsman gets two years in bomb case
COLUMBUS - An Indiana National Guardsman who had homemade explosive devices in his vehicle when he was pulled over in Ohio has been sentenced to two years in prison.
Andrew Scott Boguslawski had nine unregistered bombs and four devices that could be converted into bombs when he was stopped for speeding in January. He pleaded guilty in April.
Prosecutors had sought a four-year sentence. Defense attorney Steve Nolder says the shorter sentence indicates the judge found the 44-year-old Boguslawski had no malevolent intent.
Nolder previously said his client played the role of an enemy fighter when he helped train troops departing for war zones and wanted to make the job as real as possible.
The court also ordered Boguslawski to remain under court supervision for three years following his release.
