YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – One person is in custody after Youngstown Police set up a perimeter to look for shooting suspects on the city’s east side Sunday afternoon.
Police confirm the suspect is Terrance Craig, 26, of Campbell, who is accused of shooting another man in the parking lot of an Austintown Walmart on Oct. 30.
He was arrested after a shootout through several residential streets on Youngstown’s east side. It occurred around 3 p.m. near the 1400 block of McGuffey Road.
A witness told WKBN he saw two cars turn onto Bennington Avenue shooting at each other.
A nearby house on the 1600 block of Stewart was struck with several bullets, but no one was hurt.
Police were then called and set up a perimeter between Albert Street and Katherine Avenue. That’s when they found Craig and brought him into custody. He’s currently in Mahoning County Jail on felonious assault charges from the shooting at Walmart.
Two different scenes were set up by police — one at the house shot on Stewart where they interviewed the homeowners and witnesses, another near the Heavenly Place Church of God where they took photos of a car they believe was involved.
Police said during Craig’s arrest they discovered he was wearing a handgun chest holster and they found a handgun with an extended magazine lying on the backseat of the vehicle where Craig had been sitting, along with seven spent shell casings.
Police said Craig told them that the extended clips were for “show” and that “they jam.” Police said Craig was recently seen in a rap music video with handgun matching the description of the gun recovered from the vehicle, the report stated.
Police are still looking for two more people they think were involved.
