STEUBENVILLE, Ohio — In under 30 minutes Tuesday, two suspects involved in an alleged Steubenville shooting were taken into custody.
The shots fired call came in around 5:30 p.m. at the 2500 block of Crabbe Boulevard.
The city is crediting the public for their help in catching the wanted men, who were arrested by the Brooke County Sheriff’s Department this evening in Wellsburg.
“Citizens there had told them what happened,” Steubenville City Manager Jim Mavromatis said. “They heard shots, they saw a vehicle leaving the scene, described the vehicle and we started getting the alerts out in the area other people saw the vehicle downtown, so we called the police here and let them know and notified surrounding law enforcement.
“The cooperation we have with our citizens here is great. And this is a matter of probably 20 minutes we apprehended them”
