WARREN, Ohio (WYTV) – Warren police are looking for information on a shooting that sent several people to the hospital Tuesday night.

Detectives say based on evidence found at the scene, they are lucky there weren’t more victims.

It was a terrifying night on the 2400 block of Willow Drive SW when police say a house was shot up just after 11 a.m.

“There was a lot of rounds fired. Somewhere between 60 and 70 casings were recovered at the scene,” said detective Wayne Mackey.

Police say there’s two known victims. One was inside the home at the time of the shooting, while the other was outside. Both are expected to survive, but one of the men got shot in the head.

Investigators believe there could be a third victim and are now trying to find that person.

“This goes beyond your normal guys going after each other. This is just reckless, you know, obviously have no concern for life,” Mackey said.

Based on the number of spent casings found at the scene, police say it’s a miracle that no one was killed. They are looking for information to help lead them to whoever is responsible for this shooting.

“We have a few ideas of what happened and why, but we do need some people, especially from that neighborhood, to come forward. I hope that they’re getting tired of this happening in their neighborhood,” Mackey said.

Back in the neighborhood Wednesday, bullet holes could not only be spotted on the house, but it was clear a parked car on the street was hit too.

“Those bullets can go anywhere. These guys that do this are not marksmen, so again we’re very lucky,” Mackey said.

Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to contact Mackey at 330-841-2684.
