Erie police are continuing their search for suspects and a motive in the Wednesday-night shooting of a 19-year-old man on the city's west side.

Anthony Speed, of Erie, was transported Thursday to a hospital in Pittsburgh from Hamot Medical Center for additional treatment.

Speed was shot in the head and back Wednesday night. Police found him lying against a fence in a snow-covered yard at 1533 W. 30th St. at 10:28 p.m.

Speed was bleeding from shotgun wounds to his head and back.

His family asked that no information about his condition be released, a Hamot spokeswoman said.

Speed's injuries were serious, said Joe Emerick, a deputy chief with the Erie Bureau of Police.

Detectives said they did not know what Speed, who lives on the city's east side, was doing in the area, where West 30th Street intersects with Emerson Avenue.

Police were called to the area after neighbors heard three gunshots. A witness said at least one man kicked Speed after he had fallen.

Paramedics determined that Speed had been hit with shotgun pellets.

Police said they found a shotgun in the snow near a stop sign at the intersection with Emerson Avenue.

Detectives were still interviewing neighbors and witnesses late Thursday afternoon. They had not identified a suspect.

The Erie County District Attorney's office was monitoring the investigation but had no additional information Thursday afternoon, District Attorney Jack Daneri said.

Drugs aren't to be feared, the main drug trade in Erie is mostly Marijuana. Which is completely harmless.
Murders, rape and kidnapping are quite rare in Erie as compared to many other cities.
You should be thankful.
I guess than it is okay for your kids to come home and say hey dad I am only smoking weed...Marijuana is a gateway drug don't take it for granted. Because I can assure you there are many parents right here in Erie that would have listened when their child said that to them. But, because marijuana was okay, hey I will try this heroin just once.

Don't know what part of Orlando you're referring to. I lived there for 14 years and never so much as had my car broken into.

And, shock of shock, both the victim and shooter were from the East side. So what do the "See? It happened on the West side" folks have to say now?

And shock of shock, you are still an idiot! So, what do all the "See, I am safe cause I live West of State Street" folks have to say. It's like trying to explain something to a 2 year old.

You got spanked for this comment but I know what you mean. I linked a site on atheism/creationism for Karen on Christmas that was very involved and enlightening.
I also went on a freethought site and was following posts about the basis for morality. Those guys must have been professional philosophers or something.
Clear writing and back and forth like a tennis match, but with one great thought following another. Very impressive and fun to watch!

Would I live on the east side...no...but I would live in most other areas. Every city has its issues. If you live on the west side or south erie or in Millcreek it is a great place to raise a family.
I have lived on the East side, but now I live in the Frontier/Southshore Area. Honestly, the same criminal activity takes place. However, the wife beaters talk their way out of going to jail. Juvenile offenders have the financial means to buy their little criminals out of going to jail. I would live on the eastside. I do not care if my neighbors are black, or white... The only difference in Erie and Millcreek neighborhoods are bank accounts and the ability to cover their asses...

(Correction) I have lived on the East side, but now I live in the Frontier/South shore Area. Honestly, the same criminal activity takes place both places. However, the wife beaters talk their way out of going to jail. Parents of Juvenile offenders have the financial means to buy their little criminals out of going to jail. I would live on the east-side. I do not care if my neighbors are black, or white... The only difference in Erie and Millcreek neighborhoods are bank accounts and the ability to cover their asses...
