Suspect indicted in Youngstown shooting that left man paralyzed

A man was critically injured in a shooting in Youngstown, Ohio.

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – A Mahoning County grand jury indicted a Youngstown man Thursday, charging that he shot a man in early August and left him paralyzed, according to Mahoning County Assistant Prosecutor Dawn Cantalamessa.

DeAngelo Young, 21, is charged with attempted murder, felonious assault, aggravated robbery, kidnapping, theft and having weapons while under disability.

Cantalamessa said that surveillance video showed that Young shot a man, who police earlier identified as Kamron Miller, early on the morning of August 4. The shooting left Miller paralyzed, according to Cantalamessa.

Young was using a truck he robbed from someone in Columbus, Cantalamessa said.

An initial police report said that Young shot Miller while he was in his car near the Shell gas station near the intersection of Market Street and Avondale on the city’s south side. When police arrived on the scene, two employees of the gas station were putting Miller in their car to get him to a hospital.
