Youngstown police investigating the city's latest homicide

Posted: Updated:

Youngstown police still don't have any suspects in the city's latest homicide.

At around 6:00 p.m. Sunday evening, police were called to the 800 block of Winona Drive on Youngstown's south side.

That's where witnesses say a group of about 25 to 35 people gathered before several rounds of gunfire were exchanged.

Seventeen-year-old Shawn Cortez was shot in the chest. He later died at the hospital.

"There was an altercation at a house party involving the victim where he may have been jumped by several individuals and the fight spilled over into a fight over Facebook which in turn led to the meeting on Winona,"

The lieutenant says it's possible multiple guns were involved.

Police are reviewing cell phone video captured by witnesses as well as interviewing more witnesses.
