A 20-year-old Warren man is being held in the Trumbull County Jail on $275,000 bond on charges that he shot a man last month.

Cameron Cole, 20, of Laird Avenue, entered no plea Thursday at his initial appearance in Warren Municipal Court on a second-degree felonious assault charge that carries an eight-year maximum prison penalty.

He is scheduled for a preliminary hearing next Thursday.

Cole was arrested by U.S. Marshals at about 1:15 p.m. Wednesday at his home.

Reports say Cole shot a 23-year-old man June 8 in the 400 block of School Street N.W.

A witness told police her friend was shot and left the area. Police found the man being treated for a gunshot wound at Trumbull Memorial High School.

Officers found a live 9-millimeter bullet in the area where the shooting happened, two white tee shirts and taillight parts.

Cole, according to a records search, was charged in an August 2012 shooting and a county grand jury eventually rejected the charges.

Reports say in that shooting that a 42-year-old man, O’Neal Brown III, was shot in the foot at his home in the 900 block of South Street S.E.

When police arrived, Brown was laying on his back with his foot wrapped in a curtain. He told police he was unsure who shot him but said he believed it was two men.

Officers found two bullet shell casings in the doorway and living room of his home.
