Three Warren teenagers reported being victims of violence during the weekend, including two who were taken to a hospital for treatment.

Reports said a 19-year-old told was shot at about 5 p.m. Friday near the intersection of Landsdowne Avenue and West Boulevard N.W.

Officers found three shell casings in the area and spoke with the teenager at Trumbull Memorial Hospital. Investigators know nothing else regarding the shooting.

The next day at about 4:45 p.m., a 16-year-old was cut in the chest during a fight in the 100 block of Logan Avenue S.E.

Officers reported they found another teenager had a knife when they arrived and noted they advised both about pending charges against them, though reports fail to detail any wrongdoing by the 16-year-old.

At about 6 p.m. Sunday, a 17-year-old boy told police he was walking to his Sweetbriar Street S.W. home from a convenience store when he was attacked from behind.

The boy told police someone pistol-whipped him with a gun in the back of the head at the intersection of Deerfield Avenue S.W. and Sixth Street S.W. The person stole $300 from the boy, reports said.

He was taken to St. Joseph Hospital with a cut on his head by family members.
