WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – A warrant has been issued for a suspect Warren prosecutors say shot a man in broad daylight by a busy road.

Police surrounded a home in the 2000 block of W. Market Street on Thursday afternoon after a man was shot in the leg on the front porch of a home.

“It’s terrifying, like you don’t even know. You’re afraid to go to sleep. You don’t know who’s gonna shoot at your house, you don’t know who’s gonna get shot,” said Heather Cross, who lives nearby.

The shooter took off but city prosecutors identified him as 22-year-old Carlos Huff.

“As always when there’s a shooting, the community’s safety is our first most concern, so we’re gonna work hard to either locate him or get the information out that we need to,” Lt. Jeff Cole said.

At first, police thought Huff could still be inside the house. They shouted for him to come out before finally going inside.Warren Police are surrounding a house in the 2000 block of West Market Street.

“We sent a team in to search the home for the possible suspect after our short negotiations failed. For obvious reasons, we didn’t locate anyone inside,” Cole said.

Police said the victim was at the house, trying to collect money owed to him.

The victim was found laying on the front lawn with non-life threatening injuries. He was rushed to a local hospital for treatment.

Police haven’t identified him.
