A $10,000 reward is now being offered for anyone with information that leads to an arrest in the shooting death of two people, including a ten-year old girl.

Mayor Tito Brown had tears in his eyes during a Wednesday morning news conference.

"This is a dark day for our community, probably the darkest I've ever had as the mayor of the city of Youngstown," said Brown. "Street justice has proven to not be an answer. Put down the guns."

Brown said a reward will be offered to anyone that helps police solve this crime. Youngstown Police have traditionally struggled to have witnesses step forward with information.

"Don't tell me you don't know. Don't tell me you didn't see it," said Brown.

Chief Carl Davis says the two shootings, that took place just minutes apart, appear to be connected.

At 2:20 am Wednesday, police were called to South Avenue and Palmer Avenue where they found 40-year-old Michael Callahan shot to death in a pickup truck that had crashed into a utility pole.

A 42-year-old man who was a passenger in the truck was taken to Mercy Hospital with injuries police say are not life-threatening.

Less than ten minutes after that call, police were called to 619 Samuel Street where four people had been shot.

According to police, 10-year-old Persayus Chanell Davis was killed. 

"Enough is enough," said Davis. "When a ten year old baby loses their life because these individuals choose to settle their conflicts by shooting a gun into a home, this has got to stop."

Davis said YPD will respond to this tragedy immediately.

"I'm putting you all on notice now. We will have criminal check points all throughout the city," said Davis.

Tips leading to an arrest and prosecution are eligible for a monetary reward, according to police.

Call Crime Stoppers at 330-746-CLUE or 330-742-8YPD with any leads or tips.
