Man jailed in shooting


A Youngstown man is being held in the Mahoning County Jail on $500,000 bond for shooting another man three times last week.

Teon Stennis, 20, of Alameda Avenue, was ordered held in jail on bond on felonious assault charges. He entered no plea and a preliminary hearing was scheduled for Tuesday.

Stennis is accused of shooting Kewann Skinner, 19, of Youngstown, at about 6 p.m. Aug. 18 in front of 94 Jean St.

Reports say Stennis shot Skinner in the buttocks and twice in the leg.

Skinner’s girlfriend alerted police. Skinner told investigators he was unsure who shot him and was taken to St. Elizabeth Health Center.

Witnesses told police the shooter fled in a black Nissan SUV. Officers found three shell casings in the area.
