YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – A family fight ended in shots fired and suspects ramming their vehicles into each other.
Police responded to a home in the 100 block of Superior Street just before 7 p.m. on Wednesday.
A man said that earlier in the day, he was assaulted by 28-year-old Alonda James and her husband, 31-year-old Tony Ranalli, at a home on Fairfax Avenue. James is related to the man’s girlfriend.
The man said during that fight, Ranalli pulled a gun on his mother.
When the victim later went to his girlfriend’s house, he said James crashed her car into his, head-on.
According to a police report, Ranalli then pulled a gun on the victim and said he was going to shoot him. Police said Ranalli fired the gun into the air several times.
Ranalli and James left but returned minutes later, when Ranalli got into the victim’s car and backed into a third car parked in the driveway at high speed, police said.
James told police that the victim crashed into their car first. She said the whole incident started because he abused his girlfriend.
Ranalli and James, both of Youngstown, were arrested. Ranalli was charged with aggravated menacing and discharging a firearm in the city. James was charged with felonious assault.
