An 18-year-old man was flown by medical helicopter to a Pittsburgh hospital early Sunday morning after a shooting, Steubenville Police reported.

Officers were called at about 4:30 a.m. Sunday to the area of Claire and Summit avenues regarding multiple shots fired.

Police identified the victim as Kevion Boyce, 18, of 826 Rosswell Ave. Police reported the victim was shot twice, including in the face.

Detectives reported evidence was gathered, and the investigation is ongoing.

The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation was called for assistance in the investigation.

A witness reported hearing the multiple shots and looked out the window, seeing two people near the intersection, police reported. The witness reported seeing a person on the ground, but that person got up and ran, police reported.

People inside 1098 Claire Ave. reported Boyce was in the home prior to the shooting, but went outside, according to police. A short time later he came back to the house and was banging on the door, police reported.

Due to his injuries, Boyce was unable to speak about who may have shot him, police reported.

Meanwhile, no injuries were reported during a shots-fired incident in Marshall County early Sunday.

At about 4 a.m., deputies responded to the Viola area of Marshall County after gunshots were reported. Sheriff Kevin Cecil said deputies found one person who was unharmed. Cecil said the suspect was gone when police arrived.

Officials said the investigation is still ongoing.

In an unrelated incident at 12:52 a.m. today, Wheeling police responded to the Knights Inn at 949 Main St. for a report of a fight between two men with a firearm.

The firearm was discharged, but no one was injured. Officers were able to quickly secure the scene and arrest the suspect.

When processing the scene, officers also discovered cocaine inside the room.

Police arrested Kemaun Marquis Bourne, 23, of Campbell, Ohio. He is charged with wanton endangerment with a firearm, being a felon in possession of a firearm and possession with intent to deliver cocaine.
