Sharon Police have identified and arrested a suspect believed to be connected to a shooting incident in Sharon that resulted in one man, along with multiple stores and cars getting shot up.

A criminal complaint identified the suspect as 18-year-old Julian Jackson Jr. 

According to the complaint, police were dispatched to the 100 Block of North Water Avenue shortly after midnight Tuesday in reference to multiple shots being fired.

Upon arrival, officers located one male victim who suffered multiple gunshot wounds to the torso and groin area, as well as two nearby stores that were shot up. Police say one of those stores was occupied at the time.

According to police, the victim was taken to the hospital and is expected to be ok.

Police found 35 shell casings in a nearby parking lot, as well as a cell phone with a severely damaged screen.

Through investigation, police were able to connect the number on that cell phone with Jackson via a CashApp account in his name with that phone number.

Police also reviewed surveillance video from a nearby business, which police say showed a black Honda HRV arriving in the parking lot shortly before midnight.

Police say the video showed the victim and one other witness exit an apartment about 15 minutes later and heading towards the Honda followed by multiple people getting out of the Honda and firing shots then getting back into the vehicle and fleeing the scene.

According to the complaint, police were able to determine the registered owner of the Honda, as well as a woman who is known to use it. 

Police interviewed this woman who told police she allowed Jackson to use the vehicle shortly before the shooting occurred, and further told police that when Jackson got the vehicle back to her, he had told her he lost his phone.

Jackson was taken into custody by the New Castle Police Department Wednesday morning and Sharon Police took custody of him from there.

He's currently booked in the Mahoning County Jail and is charged with two counts of attempted criminal homicide, two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, two counts of aggravated assault and one count of possession of a firearm while prohibited.
