WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – Police in Warren are working to find out what happened in the moments before a young mother was shot and dropped off at Trumbull Memorial Hospital late Saturday night.
While hospital staff tried to save 22-year-old Becky Pyne, she was pronounced dead nearly an hour after being brought in.
More than 36 hours into the homicide investigation, Warren detectives are following up on leads to figure out who shot Pyne in front of her baby and boyfriend.
“We’re just collecting all the information we can to try to determine what happened,” Capt. Robert Massucci said.
In 911 calls, security at TMH reported that a car dropped Pyne off at the hospital and then sped away.
The driver of that car was later identified as Pyne’s boyfriend, who police said dropped her off at the hospital and then took their baby to a relative before returning to TMH.
“We ended up locating the boyfriend of hers that had brought her to the hospital. He advised us where the shooting had took place,” Massucci said.
Warren Police said there was blood on the outside of the South Leavitt Street home where they said the shooting took place. They collected evidence from the home, which is now being processed.
Investigators questioned Pyne’s boyfriend over the weekend but no charges have been filed.
“The boyfriend claims there was another person involved, so we’re just trying to follow down all the leads we can and trying to figure out who that person was,” Massucci said.
Detectives say that figuring out who the shooter was is their top priority right now. They then hope to be able to determine a motive for the crime.
