YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – A man who was found with a gunshot wound early Tuesday morning on Youngstown’s south side said he was out for a walk to “blow off anxiety” when he was shot.
The victim, 35-year-old Andy Dicioccio, had been released Monday from the Mahoning County Jail. He had been booked in earlier that morning on a warrant for a criminal trespass charge.
Officers found Dicioccio about 4:30 a.m. Tuesday on the front porch of a home in the 600 block of West Princeton Avenue.
A witness said she heard a knock on her door and saw Dicioccio on her porch. Dicioccio told the woman that he had been shot, reports said. However, he could not tell police exactly where he was shot, reports said.
Officers followed blood drops down the street toward Glenwood Avenue but could not find a crime scene, reports said.
Reports said about 3:45 a.m, officers answered a gunshot sensor call in the 700 block of Canfield Road but found nothing after staying on the scene for 20 minutes and checking the area.
Dicioccio was taken to St. Elizabeth Hospital with serious injuries.
