Man killed after being shot at multiple times in Warren identified
Officials have revealed the name of a man who was killed after being shot at multiple times in a Warren neighborhood.
According to a press release, police were dispatched just before 2:00 a.m. to the 1900 block of S Feederle SE in response to a call for shots fired. Warren Safety Services Director, Eddie Colbert identified the male victim as 51-year-old Brandon Reed.
Upon arrival, police located Reed, who they say was shot at multiple times. Reed was taken to the hospital where he was later pronounced deceased.
Detectives are currently investigating this case. If you have any information, you're asked to contact Detective Nicole Smith at 330-841-2684.
According to dispatchers, witnesses say the shooter was driving an orange Charger before fleeing from the scene.
Warren's Director of Public Safety & Service Eddie Colbert, says they're hoping for more people to come forward.
"Our abilities to be able to bring these individuals to justice in large part, lie on the cooperation that we get from the community," Colbert said.
Reed's homicide follows a string of recent gun violence in the city. The lack of security in neighborhoods is concerning city council members, and they're calling on the mayor to bring in additional help.
"Either bring the sheriff in, the state troopers, whatever we [have to] do. But we have to address this issue." Ken MacPherson, Warren councilman told 21 News.
City council members say they are working closely with the city's police department to add surveillance cameras throughout the city's fifth ward.
"Myself and another council member are working with the Warren City Police Department for flock cameras and license plate readers," Ashley McBride, fifth ward councilwoman said.
Council members believe these high tech systems will increase response times while providing clear evidence.
