Apparent shooting investigation in Steubenville

Updated: Thursday, January 23 2014, 12:11 AM EST

Steubenville, OH --

NEWS9 is following developing news out of Steubenville where an apparent shooting investigation is underway.

 

Details were limited on Wednesday night, but officials with the Steubenville Police Department say the call came in around 9:30p.m.

 

After that things become a little unclear.

 

A NEWS9 crew traveled out to Roswell Avenue and shot video of a near-by property where investigators were searching for evidence and crime tape had been strung.

 

The same NEWS9 crew also stopped at the Maryland Market which sits in the 1400 block of Maryland Avenue.

               

There they found a similar scene, more crime scene tape and police. Employees inside told our crews that a man ran inside bleeding claiming he had taken a gunshot to the hand. An injury the victim claimed to have sustained in an incident near Roswell Avenue.

 

Witnesses also provided NEWS9 with pictures from shortly after police arrived. The photos show a car with what appears to be several bullet holes.

               

Our reporter counted 7 in total and employees say two of the tires were flattened.

 

"We saw a car pull up with two flat tires and a girl was scared,” said Sarandos Tsouris, a witness. “He (the victim) dropped her off here and he came in and his finger looked like it was missing, they shot his finger off."

 

Not many details are being released by investigators. Be sure to look for updates right here on WTOV9.com.
