WARREN, Ohio (WYTV) – A man is facing a murder charge after police say he fatally shot another man during a birthday party in Warren last week.
Charles Parker, 24, was arrested late Tuesday morning in the 4600 block of Deer Creek Ct. in Austintown. He was then booked into the Trumbull County Jail.
Parker is charged in connection to the shooting death of 26-year-old Robert Johnson on June 29.
According to police, the two men got into a verbal altercation in front of about 30-50 people — including children — at a party in Quinby Park.
After the altercation, officials said Parker left but returned to shoot Johnson multiple times.
Johnson’s death is Warren’s 12th homicide of the year.
