Technology used by Youngstown Police to locate the gunfire in the city led officers to what detectives are calling a homicide.

Police say their Shot Spotter indicated that shots had been fired in the area of 36 Hilton Avenue just after 10 p.m. Wednesday.

When police arrived they found the body of a man on the ground in the back yard of a home at that address. Police say he had been shot.

The identity of the victim has not yet been released by the Mahoning County Coroner. A media release describes him only as a black male in his mid 20's.

The release does not say if there are any suspects or arrests but asks anyone with information to contact the YPD Detective Division at 330-752-8911 or the Patrol Commander's Office at 330-742-8950.
