Warren homeowner admits fatally shooting teen

Posted: Updated:
WARREN, Ohio - Warren police detectives say a southeast side resident admitted shooting a 17-year-old boy outside his Brier Street S.E. home.

According to police reports, 17-year-old Kyran Adkins died after he was shot on Wednesday.

The 32-year-old resident told investigators that he went to the front door carrying a gun after repeatedly hearing noises coming from the front of the home.

The homeowner says he opened the door and saw the teen holding a gun.  The resident says he was startled and shot the teen.

Adkins was declared dead at St. Joseph Health Center. The Trumbull County Coroner says Adkins died from a gunshot wound to his chest. 

John F. Kennedy High School and Willard PK-8 are in the neighborhood where the incident took place, and both schools were placed on lock down for about an hour. 

Police believe a second suspect who was at the back of the home ran away and is still at large.

Mayor Doug Franklin is now urging anyone who knows something, to say something.

"I'm asking anybody who knows something just to come forward," Franklin says. "They can remain anonymous and we need the information to solve this crime."

Police do not consider the resident of the home a suspect at this time.
