One man is dead in Warren after police say he attempted to purchase an item from an unknown person in the area.

Police were called to the area of Colonial Street and South Feederle Drive SE just after 8:00 p.m. Saturday night in reference to a shooting. Upon arrival, they transported the victim to the hospital where he later died from his injuries.

This shooting comes just one week after a teen from the Cleveland area was shot and killed in Warren when trying to sell a PlayStation 5 console to someone he had met online.

Warren Police are asking citizens not to meet anyone they don't know for the purposes of buying, selling or trading items. 

This is an ongoing investigation. Anyone with any information on this incident should contact Detective John P. Greaver at 330-841-2723 or [email protected]
