Warren man who shot 9-year-old in arm sentenced to 25 1/2 to 29 1/2 years in prison
A Warren man convicted of shooting a nine-year-old girl in the arm and wounding her has been handed his sentence in court Thursday.
According to the Trumbull County Prosecutor's Office, 22-year-old Say'Quan Parks was sentenced to an indefinite term of 25-and-a-half to 29-and-a-half years in prison on charges of felonious assault, improper discharge of firearm into habitation and improper handling of a firearm in a motor vehicle.
He was also convicted of seven firearm specifications each carrying mandatory prison terms.
The charges stem from an incident back in June of 2023 when Parks fired 23 shots from a semi-automatic handgun outside of the Big Apple Supermarket off Youngstown Road SE.
One of those shots went through the walls of a home on Kenilworth Avenue SE and struck a nine-year-old girl in the arm while she was asleep.
That girl along with her mother were in the courtroom on Thursday, with the mother telling the court that her daughter still has problems with her arm and also suffers from post traumatic stress from the shooting.
Judge Ronald Rice noted Parks's previous criminal history, which began when he was 17 years old with drug offenses. He was then charged with domestic violence at age 19.
