While playing a quick game of Tiger Woods 2003 last night, my wife called down the basement steps. She said I had to come upstairs and check out what was going on outside.
Here’s what the paper had to say about it:
Suspect in custody after Falls shooting
CUYAHOGA FALLS: A 22-year-old man was taken to Akron City Hospital on Tuesday night after a shooting in the 2300 block of Chestnut Boulevard.
Witnesses heard at least two gunshots, Cuyahoga Falls Police Chief John Conley said. Police were unable to confirm the victim’s name and city of residence.
A 24-year-old suspect was apprehended early today after a vehicle seen leaving the shooting crashed at Norton Heights Drive and Quick Road, Conley said. The suspect was apprehended nearby at a self-storage site in the 4000 block of State Road.
Police have not determined if the vehicle belonged to the victim.
A weapon was also seized. A .32-caliber semiautomatic gun was believed used in the shooting, which occurred around 11 p.m.
No further details were available.
Even at 11:30 at night, this kind of event brings out the neighborhood. At the time, none of us really knew what had happened. Some people told me they heard a rumbling noise, like trash cans being banged around. But none of them thought it was a gun. My wife didn’t hear any of it, and I didn’t hear any of it, even though it happened right in front of our house. Neighbors from the next street over heard it, though.
After the detectives showed up and started taking pictures, I decided to try and snap a couple night shots. I didn’t want to interfere with the police, so I set up the camera on the front stoop. I took one shot with the flash by accident. For the others, I tried using the night mode of the camera. After a little cleanup in Paint Shop Pro, I have these shots to post. I didn’t shrink these down, so I’ve posted them to open in a new window.
