Police investigating double shooting in Youngstown

Posted: Updated:
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - Two people are hospitalized after an apparent double shooting Sunday afternoon in Youngstown.

According to a police report, two people, identified as 17-year-old Raheem Johnson and 20-year-old Samer Awadallah, stumbled into the St. Elizabeth Medical Center around 3 p.m. with gunshot wounds to their backs.

Johnson said that he and Awadallah were sitting in a Black Honda Accord on Craiglee Avenue near Council Rock Avenue with one other person, when an unknown vehicle pulled next to them and opened fire. The victims were then driven to the hospital.

Awadallah said two males were in the car that opened fire on them.

A citizen at the hospital at the time of the victims' arrival said that she saw them get out of a beige Pontiac Sunfire, but the victims said they were dropped off by the Black Honda Accord they were in at the time of the shooting.

The car in question was registered to a woman who said that she let Awadallah drive the vehicle to work sometimes.

Officials say they do not have any suspects but police officers are at the 300 block of Superior Street, currently inspecting the Honda Accord. Both victims are listed in stable condition.
