YPD Searching for two people in arson and murder investigation.

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – The Youngstown Police Department is looking for the community’s help in identifying two people wanted for questioning in an arson and murder investigation.

Detectives have released a series of photos taken from a surveillance camera at a house in the 1500 block of Kensington Avenue on the city’s north side on September 20.

On that day, Andre Harrison was shot and killed at a house on Kensington Avenue. Later that evening, his house was set on fire.

Crimestoppers Youngstown believes that the people seen in the surveillance video may have had some part in the crime.

“If you see these images of these gentlemen, it’s pretty clear. I mean, somebody out there has looked at these pictures and knows who that is, and we’re just asking them to come forward with that,” said Youngstown Police Capt. Brad Blackburn.

At this point, police won’t talk about a motive in the case, but they are asking anyone with information to call the Youngstown Police Department at 330-742-89111 or Crimestoppers Youngstown at 330-746-CLUE.
