Brookfield police are investigating the apparent shooting death of a Masury man.
Police said Jason C. Drummond Jr., 24, of 853 Wahabe Court, died at 9:55 a.m. today in Mercy Health-St. Elizabeth Hospital, Youngstown.
Police said they received a call of shots fired at 1:11 a.m. from the 7800 block of Warren Sharon Road. While on the way, police were told a man with a gunshot wound was at 610 Brookfield Ave., police said.
Brookfield firefighters took Drummond to Sharon Regional Medical Center, and he was transferred to St. E’s.
Drummond had an injury to the back of his head, police said.
A woman who was in the car with Drummond told police he was driving eastbound on Warren Sharon Road when shots were fired into the car and he slumped over, police said.
The woman was able to get control of the car and head to the Brookfield Avenue residence, police said.
“We’re not sure of the details,” Police Chief Dan Faustino said. “We’re trying to get the facts.”
Police said they found shell casings in the 7800 block of Warren Sharon and have seized the car. A search warrant for the car is being sought, and the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation will be brought in to aid the search, police said.
An autopsy will be performed in Mahoning County, where Drummond died, police said.
Police have been canvassing the area to see if anyone saw anything, and checking any surveillance video they can find, Faustino said.
