Man, shot by Warren cop, indicted by grand jury

A Warren Police officer shot Randall Bryant twice on May 27.

WARREN, Ohio (WYTV) – A Trumbull County grand jury indicted a man who investigators believe pointed a gun at a Warren Police officer who then shot him in late May, according to a release sent Friday.

Prosecutors have charged Randall Bryant, 45, with felonious assault, assault, possession of cocaine and having weapons while under disability, according to the release.

Investigators believe that Bryant assaulted his girlfriend on the night of May 27, which led her family to call 911 when she arrived at her home. Bryant then showed up at her house before an ambulance or Warren Police Officer Adam Huffman, according to police.

Police believe that Bryant’s girlfriend’s mother then pulled a gun on him, which he wrestled away from her, and pointed a different gun at Huffman when he arrived at the house a short time later.

Huffman then shot and hit Bryant twice, injuring but not killing him. Prosecutors cleared Huffman of any wrongdoing in the case.
