Death: After bullets were fired in Youngstown, police identified a Warren man who was killed in the chase – William Dorsey, 33, of Warren, was slain after he failed to stop for police who tried to pull him over Tuesday, according to police and the Mahoning County Coroner’s Office.
Dorsey was suspected of shooting bullets at someone filling their tires with air at a South Avenue gas station at 6 p.m., according to police.
According to wkbn.com, Rather than stopping for authorities, the SUV collided with a concrete bridge barrier on Gibson and overturned numerous times. Dorsey was killed after being thrown from the SUV. He was accompanied by a female passenger who was critically injured, but authorities say she is expected to recover.
Before an ambulance arrived, an officer had to place a tourniquet on her arm. A handgun was discovered among the wreckage, according to police.
The man who was shot informed police that the driver of the SUV fired at him because he was outraged about a 20-year-old incident.
The Internal Affairs Division of the police is conducting an investigation to ensure that all of the agency’s pursuit protocols were followed. Obituary not available the moment, check back later.
