Youngstown police are looking for a man suspected of firing shots that wounded an employee of a south side convenience store and a child.

Detectives have issued a warrant for the arrest of 26-year-old Tyrell Maiden of Youngstown.  He's been charged with two counts of felonious assault.

Witnesses tell police that a man with a gun chased Levert Dent into the  store Wednesday afternoon and began firing shots.

Store employee, 25-year-old Mohammud Alruheim was shot in the stomach, and store customer 12-year-old Jwan Walker was shot in the arm.

Witnesses say that Dent and the gunman then ran out  of the store.

Dent has been arrested on a charge of carrying a concealed weapon and is in the Mahoning County jail.

Police don't believe that the wounds suffered by the victims are life threatening.
