BEDFORD, Ohio (WOIO) - A 13-year-old boy was fatally shot and a 15-year-old boy was injured in a Bedford shooting on Sunday, according to a Bedford Police Department news release.

Police say officers arrived at Corkhill Road and Lee Road South in Bedford around 7 p.m. for a report of a person shot.

Officers discovered two victims, a 15-year-old and a 13-year-old, had been shot.

“I think it’s terrible,” said Elizabeth Wudske who lives nearby. “It’s awful cause we never had any problems like that on the street here.”

Police say the 13-year-old, Hysheen Thomas, died due to his injuries.

Father James Stephens was horrified to hear about this tragedy happening in his neighborhood.

“It was shocking to hear that you said someone got killed at the intersection of our apartment complex to hear that you know I think about my child that lives close by,” Stephens said. “Obviously, she doesn’t go outside too much without me but you know she’ll be 13 here in a few years so just to kind of think about the kinds of things that are going on over here if doesn’t sit easy with me.”

The deadly shooting is still under investigation.

Anyone that may have information on this case is asked to call the Bedford Police Detective Bureau at 440-232-3408.
