BOARDMAN, Ohio (WKBN) Coitsville police arrested Kevin Sabo and Joseph Holmes Monday night at a motel in Coitsville on heroin possession charges after the suspects allegedly tried to steal a bag of shrimp from the Sparkle Market on South Avenue.

The two suspects left the store and entered a car, nearly running over the store s security guard, who fired shots at them. No one was hit by the gunfire, and the suspects fled.

Both men now face court appearances later this week after being charged with felonious assault from the Boardman incident, as well as heroin-possession charges from when they were apprehended Monday night. The heroin charges are not related to the alleged shoplifting.

Authorities are scheduled to arraign the two for the Boardman incident Thursday and for their alleged possession of heroin on Friday.

Two witnesses at the Sparkle said the security guard chased the alleged shoplifters out of the building Monday afternoon.

Kenny Dubose and Veneda Green were outside of the Sparkle grocery store on South Avenue in Boardman when they saw the guard start shooting.

But the cop, he just opened fire.

There was people standing out there at the entrance to the store, like four or five people, kids, a guy that I knew, his mom, people just standing out there and the cop he just opened fire. He ain t even a cop, just a security guard. He just opened fire on the car, the car was past him, in front of him.

He had no reason to pull out that gun and start shooting, Dubose said. He could have killed somebody. He could have shot innocent people.

Police said the security guard didn t do anything wrong.

A security guard can have the same rights as you and I do with deadly force.

If he feels his life is threatened, he has a right to protect himself, said Boardman Police Sgt.

Brian Habeger.

The suspects face up to eight years behind bars. As for the car, police located the Green Dodge.
