20-year-old faces charges of inducing panic after showing gun

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - A frightening incident occurred on Glenwood Avenue on Wednesday over a moving truck in a driveway.

The dispute resulted in one man pulling out what initially appeared to be a sub-machine gun and threatening a family.

Sherrie Wolfe and her brother Ode Grubb had the weapons pointed at them and were being threatened.

"I come to move her daughter out and the guy just pulled a gun because he wanted us to leave," Grubb says.

The episode erupted when Grubb pulled a U-Haul into the driveway of this home in the 400 block of Glenwood Avenue to move his niece's belongings out of the home.

Another woman who lives there said she had a doctor's appointment and told Grubb, his sister and other family members the U-Haul had to go.

"That's when, all of a sudden, her boyfriend, whoever he was, came out of the window with a gun. I don't know guns, a shotgun or whatever it was, and he aimed it at my brother," says Wolfe. "And then I walked away to call the police and that's when he started walking across the roof with the gun."

More than a half a dozen Youngstown police officers surrounded the home with guns drawn, ordering the man out. Vincent Uscianowski, 20, of Youngstown was arrested.

Sherrie Wolfe tells 21 News reporter Michelle Nicks that she's just happy to get her daughter out of here.

"We're just trying to move her out. If they would have waited another five minutes, we would have been gone," Wolfe says.

Police determined that Uscianowski was actually armed with a BB or pellet guns, but officers agree, they look real.

Uscianowski is facing a charge of inducing panic.
