The Stark County Sheriff’s Office says that one man was killed and another wounded in an attempted robbery Friday afternoon near Minerva. The incident took place just after 2:30 PM at the Skyland Hills Mobile Home Park along U.S. Route 30. It’s believed that two men and a woman attempted to rob a 22-year-old man at his residence in an apparent drug-related issue. The man was found by deputies deceased from a single gunshot wound. The second person shot is one of the alleged robbers, and was treated at a Canton-area hospital. It appears that he was shot by the victim in self-defense. Authorities are still trying to piece out exactly what happened during the incident.
