Tell it like it is… The epitome of Mansfield has become “crime will soar” IF you don’t pay more.
Now Drew Tyler almighty speaker for the Corrupt, are YOU still ROTFLMAO?
28-year-old Dorian Voltaire was found with two gunshot wounds to the stomach in a 1111/2 Wood St. apartment around 1 a.m. Sunday, and 16-year-old Ashton Auflick was found one street over with one gunshot wound of his own, according to Mansfield police report and news release.
The two remain at OhioHealth MedCentral Mansfield Hospital, according to the release.
Both are believed to have been injured in the same early-morning incident Sunday.
Police were called to 1111/2 Wood Street for a shooting around 1 a.m. Sunday, where they found Voltaire injured.
A 33-year-old female witness to the shooting said she and Voltaire were at the store earlier that day, and he was “flaunting” money he received from a life insurance claim. His bragging made her nervous and she asked a 31-year-old man to come home with them, according to the police report.
Shortly after arriving back home, the woman said she heard a knock at the door. A young man was standing outside holding money and asking to come in. She refused and shut the door, the report said.
Minutes later, she heard footsteps running up the stairs behind her and turned to find the man who had been at the door inside her home. He yelled, “get in the room, he’s got a gun,” she told police.
Then a gun went off and she said she heard Voltaire yelling he’d been shot.
Voltaire told witnesses he shot back at a shooter and hit one, the police report said.
Minutes later, police were called about another shooting at 90 Blymer Ave. They found wounded Auflick outside on the ground and transported him to the hospital.
The two appeared to be injured in the same shooting incident on Wood Street, the release said.
Three hand guns were located throughout both investigations, two of which had been reported stolen, the report said.
No charges have been filed, pending the outcome of the investigation, the report said. The incident remains under investigation.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact Detective David Scheurer at 419-755-9748.
Anita Adkins, a next door neighbor, said she too is sick of the violence in the area.
It has become common to see blue and red lights streaming through her window since she moved into the apartment in August; police conduct raids in the area all the time, she said.
Adkins said she doesn’t want her two school-age daughters to get used to waking up to the sound of gun shots.
“What if one of those bullets had strayed?” Adkins asked.
“Today is the last straw,” Adkins said. “We’re going to start looking for another place to live.”
