Warren police continue to search for shooting suspect

Posted: Updated:

WARREN, Ohio - A juvenile suspect in one of two shootings at a Warren convenience store this week is facing charges. 

Warren Police Chief Eric Merkel says 16-year-old Christopher Jackson is being held in the Trumbull County Juvenile Detention Center on aggravated robbery and felonious assault charges. Jackson is accused in the shooting of another teen Sunday night. 

Police say they don't have a suspect in the fatal shooting of 22-year-old Khaled Nassar Tuesday night. A person of interest was taken into custody and arrested following a police pursuit that ended in Warren Township Tuesday evening near Richwood Avenue.

Warren Police Chief Eric Merkel says investigators were hoping he has some information.

"We believe he has some involvement, we're just not exactly sure what that is at this point," Merkel says.

The man's name is not being named and is not facing charges at this time. Detectives say it's still too soon to tell if either crimes are in any way connected.
