Shooting in Warren leaves one dead

Updated:

WARREN, Ohio - One man is dead and one was taken to the hospital by a Good Samaritan on their way to church in Warren on Sunday morning.

Outside a home on Elm Court multiple gunshots were fired, one striking the glass door of a daycare that was set to open

Luckily, the doors were still closed no one was outside when the mayhem erupted nearby.

"We have detectives out canvassing the neighborhood collecting evidence, preserving the scene," said Detective Cole with the Warren Police Department.

Just beyond the crime scene tape there were 37 crime scene markers that indicated a major shot out took place.

A Good Samaritan named Jackie was on her way to observe Veterans Day with her son, a U.S. Marine. Her daughter and friend were in the car when they noticed a man bleeding near a parking lot on Market Street.

"He was shot in teh chest, upper abdomen and it went all the way through. My whole back seat is covered with blood right now," Jackie said

That victim, Larry Smith, was sent by Life Flight to a Cleveland hospital.

Marco Dukes, who was shot in the head and multiple times, died.

Warren Councilman Eddie Colbert believes the majority of the city's crime problems have to do with the drug trade.

"I think that it would send a message not only to the drug dealers, the criminal element, but as well as our citizens by bringing back a narcotics unit to show these guys were serious about taking back our neighborhoods and taking back our cities," Colbert said.

Two suspects were arrested a few blocks away near a packed church and restaurant.
