Youngstown police investigating fatal shooting on Tod Lane

Posted: Updated:
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -
Youngstown police say an unknown dispute between two men, who at one time were friends, is possibly behind the city's most recent homicide.

The suspect Prince Jennings had been at 116 Tod Lane a few times on Friday looking for his estranged friend. Police say Dillon Howard wasn't home so Jennings went looking for him. 

Sergeant John Purdue, with Youngstown PD, said, "Earlier that day he had seen Howard and a friend of his walking on Wick Avenue, and Jennings took a couple of shots at Howard. Before that he allegedly assaulted a woman who was letting him stay at her place. And early yesterday on Mount Vernon he got into an altercation with a lady who let him stay with her. 

At around 1:00 a.m. Saturday morning, we believe the suspect came here to 116 Tod Lane, knocked on the door, then fired 12 shots into the house. 
The victim 33-year-old Shannon Strosnider was pronounced dead at the scene." According to the police report bullets barley missed her ten year old son. 

Youngstown police believe her ex-boyfriend was the intended target. Friends are upset saying the victim Shannon Strosnider was recovering from heart surgery, needed assistance, and was in bed all the time. 

Belinda Gauna said, "Shannon was a very nice woman, she had a son who is ten years old, and a dog that never left her side. Her sister was also living with her."

Police are looking for Prince Jennings, who is 6'1" and weighs about 240 pounds. If you have information call Youngstown Police or Crimestoppers anonymously at 330-746-CLUE.
