WARREN, Ohio (WYTV) – Warren police are working to piece together events that led to the shooting of a man inside a northeast side home.
Police were called about 1:40 a.m. Saturday to a home on Plymouth Place N.E. where a caller said a man had been shot.
When police arrived, they found Jimmy Rose, 28, lying on the floor of an upstairs bedroom with a gunshot wound, according to a police report.
The homeowner, Tammy Williams, told police she was lying in bed with Rose when they heard a noise outside their locked bedroom door. Williams retrieved her .380 handgun and handed it to Rose. Rose went to the door and opened it coming face to face with four masked men, according to the report.
Rose and one of the men exchange gunfire and Rose fell to the floor, according to Williams. Williams said the assailants ran away.
Two witnesses in the house told police they did not hear any gunfire and were awakened by Williams screaming, “Jimmy has been shot.” Williams’ son, who said he was in a bedroom of the home at the time of the shooting, said he heard gunshots and ran downstairs to chase the assailants but they were gone.
No arrests have been made.
