Suspect arrested in deadly Hubbard Township shooting
The Trumbull County Coroner and police were on the scene of a reported shooting in Hubbard Township late Thursday morning.
Dispatchers got a call that a woman had been found shot in a car parked at a gas well site off Seifert Lewis Road shortly after 10 a.m.
A team from the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation arrived at around 11:30 a.m.
21 News counted 17 evidence markers near shell casings around the Chevy Malibu.
According to dispatch logs, a woman called 911 saying her friend had been shot and that she didn't think she was breathing.
The caller told dispatchers she had been kidnapped by a male and was taken to an address on Dogwood Lane in Youngstown, but was able to get to her car and drive back to the scene of the shooting, where she called 911. Hubbard Chief Greg Tarr said police are still talking to witnesses and it's still not clear whether there was a kidnapping or what exactly happened leading up to the shooting.
The call log indicates a person of interest in the shooting, a 25-year-old Devonte J. Douglas, showed up at Youngstown police shortly after the shooting attempting to get a car out of impound and was detained for questioning.
Police were at his address on the 1400 block of Dogwood Lane Thursday afternoon, but would not say exactly what they were looking for or what connection it may have had to the shooting.
Douglas was charged with homicide and has been booked into the Trumbull County Jail.
Police believe they know who the victim is, but family members have not yet been notified.
