Youngstown, Ohio – Youngstown firefighters were attacked and one was shot on Dec 5th while responding to a fire. As theys were leaving the aftermath of a fire at 11:30 PM, an unknown perpetrator began shooting at the firefighters shooting one in the leg. Another bullet passed through the coat of another firefighter. Police responded, but were not able to find the perp.
Fire Chief John O’Neill told WKBN news that this was a targeted shooting. “I don’t think they were stray bullets. There were a few shots taken, and we have at least two bullet holes in the truck,” O’Neill said. “Now it’s going to be up to the police. Hopefully, the police will get on this and get someone right away and find out what’s going on and why they did it.”
The suspect is still not apprehended, and police will be escorting firefighters until further notice. Firefighters were arguing with someone at the scene previously and police were called. They are actively trying to locate this individual.
The firefighter is in stable condition and is expected to recover.
This has happened before and a police escort is wise until this scumbag is caught
