Youngstown man in critical condition after south side shooting

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - A 21-year-old man is in the hospital in critical condition after someone opened fire while he sat in his SUV.

As Youngstown detectives processed the crime scene to collect evidence, the mother of Jaquez Brown tried to get to her son's vehicle which was riddled with bullets.

Shots rang out just after 5 o'clock Saturday evening outside the Petra Food Mart at the corner of South Avenue and Dewey in Youngstown.

Lt. Doug Bobovnik says police have a 911 call that came stating that a vehicle fled the parking lot after shots were fired, but there was no further evidence.  The caller did not say what type of vehicle it was that fled the scene. 

Employees at Petra Food Mart say they didn't see anything. They had the television turned on inside and were helping a customer when they heard what sounded like shots fired.

The white SUV that the victim was in was parked a distance from the store, the gear was in park and the car idling. There is no surveillance video outside the store for police to see what happened. 

Youngstown police say if you look at the spread pattern of the bullets that went through the door, you can tell someone just walked up and unloaded a gun on the victim. Lt. Bobvnik says, "It happened face-to-face pretty much."

Police have not been able to talk with the victim who was in critical condition. He was shot once in the head and possibly multiple more times. So far there are no witnesses. If you have information about the shooting call Youngstown police.
