A somber scene in Struthers
Two days after the deadly shooting at 111 Perry Street in Struthers, all is quiet.
Stuffed animals line the stairs up to the sidewalk leading to the home while heart-shaped helium-filled balloons tied to a hand railing gently float with the breeze in front of the house where 4 year-old Rowan Sweeney was shot and ultimately died in the early hours of Monday morning.
The scene is a somber site where just a few days prior a mass shooting took place wounding four adults - 20 year-old Cassandra Marsicola, 30 year-old Yarnell Green Jr., 20 year-old Andre McCoy Jr., and 22 year-old Alexis Schneider - the dead child's mother.
The community is still is disbelief that such an event could happen in the their neighborhood.
Neighbors reported hearing five to eight gunshots according to Struthers Police Chief Tim Roddy.
The suspected triggerman, Kimonie Bryant, in the case turned himself over to US Marshals Monday evening.
Bryant was arraigned in Struthers Municipal Court Wednesday, Sept. 23 and Judge Dominic Leone III ordered Bryant held without bond. A grand jury is expected to hear the case in the the coming days.
Several community funding sites have been organized to help pay for Rowan's funeral and the family's medical bills.
