Ohio State football recruit wounded in Youngstown shooting

YOUNGSTOWN — An Ohio State football recruit and the driver of the car in which he was riding were wounded in an apparent drive-by shooting in Youngstown.

Police say 18-year-old recruit Jamel Turner was wounded in the left ankle and right hip and the driver was shot in the hand late Friday night. None of the wounds was life-threatening.

Another passenger told police that two men fired at their car from a passing vehicle late Friday night.

There were no immediate arrests.

Turner, a defensive end, played for Ursuline High School in Youngstown and Fork Union Military Academy in Virginia.

Turner could not be reached for comment Monday. There is no phone listing for a Turner on his street.
