A Farrell man was shot in the arm early Friday morning on Sharpsville Avenue in Sharon.
Sharon police Chief Mike Menster said police were called at 2:11 a.m. to a parking lot in the 100 block of North Sharpsville.
A 37-year-old man had one or two gunshot wounds to his upper arm and shoulder and was taken to St. Elizabeth Health Center, Youngstown, for treatment. Menster said the victim was released from the hospital Friday.
The man was walking in the parking lot and another man came up and fired at least six to seven shots at him, hitting him at least once, Menster said.
The shooter, described as a black man in a dark-colored hoodie, left the scene in a beige 2002 Ford Explorer, Menster said.
Police believe there was only one victim and one gunman.
Later Friday morning, police found the SUV in the 100 block of Washington Street and got a warrant to search it, Menster said.
Menster said they didn’t know the motive for the shooting as of Friday afternoon and were not releasing ballistic details.
Menster said they’re investigating whether Friday’s shooting is related to one Oct. 3 in the 500 block of Emerson Avenue in Farrell.
In that incident, two men were shot but no one was charged. Ralph Samuels, 47, was shot once in the wrist and Daniel L. Odem, 20, Farrell, was treated for a gunshot wound to his left arm.
Southwest Mercer County Regional police have not released any more information about that shooting.
Menster asked anyone with information about the Sharon shooting to call police.
