YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) — Two men involved in a shooting at Youngstown gas station last week were indicted Thursday on numerous charges.

Tyrell Maiden, 26, and Levert Dent, 25, were indicted by a Mahoning County grand jury on five counts each of felonious assault, all with firearm specifications, one count each of carrying concealed weapons and one count each of tampering with evidence.

Neither of the men have been arrested, according to Mahoning County Jail records.

A warrant was issued for Maiden on June 19, one day after police said he and Dent were arguing in the parking of Ally Food Store on South Avenue. Police said the men were arguing as they entered the store and the argument escalated into a shootout.

The owner of the store and a teenage boy were hit by gunfire and taken to the hospital.
