A 21-year-old man who’s been on the lamb since a May 28 shooting was arrested Thursday morning at a house in the 1000 block of Hamilton Avenue in Farrell after police were tipped off he was hiding out there, Southwest Mercer County Regional Police Chief Riley Smoot said.

Anthony D. “Dupus” Scott, 21, who has no fixed address but apparently lives in Farrell, is charged with attempted homicide, aggravated and simple assault and reckless endangering. He was taken to Mercer County Jail after failing to post $200,000 bond.

Scott fled the area after a shooting on Lee Avenue just north of Union Street in Farrell.

He’s accused of shooting William Robinson of Youngstown, pistol- whipping Robinson’s brother and firing a shot at another man at 10:54 p.m.

He left the scene on a bike, police said.

Robinson was treated at St. Elizabeth Health Center in Youngstown for a gunshot wound to his hip.

The shooting didn’t appear to be drug- or gang-related, Southwest police detective Capt. Doug Long said last spring, although Scott has a lengthy history of gun-related violence in the Shenango Valley.

Scott is on probation for threatening a witness in a 2007 shooting case and he had been charged for another shooting that year on Negley Street in Farrell; those charges were withdrawn because of uncooperative witnesses, authorities said.
