The suspect in a Warren bar shooting is scheduled to go on trial Monday in Trumbull County Common pleas court.

 Ryan Rulong, 27, is charged with eight counts of attempted murder, eight counts of felonious assault and one count of aggravated robbery, all with firearm specifications. 

Police said Rulong fired a gun out of his truck and struck three Warren men at the University of Larchmont bar May 10. 

Those men, ages 67, 42, and 56, were taken to local hospitals for treatment for minor injuries.

Just a few days later, Warren police got wind that Howland had a robbery suspect in a white Ford 150 truck who was arrested on Route 11 on a robbery charge after holding up the True North gas station on East Market Street.

Warren police sent over a detective to interview the suspect, later identified as Rulong, where Merkel says Rulong confessed to the Larchmont shooting and gave evidence that he had turned over to the detective.
