Man shot in the head during Akron neighbor dispute dies
AKRON, Ohio — A 25-year-old man shot in the head during a dispute with his neighbor last week died during the weekend, officials said. Christopher Fenwick, 25, died Saturday at Akron General Medical Center. He was shot in the head about 8:30 p.m. Wednesday on his Crosier Street porch.
The Summit County Medical Examiner performed an autopsy Saturday on Fenwick and ruled that he died of a gunshot wound to the back of the head. The shooting is ruled a homicide. The next-door neighbor accused of shooting Fenwick, Joseph Hrubik, 28, now faces aggravated murder charges.
Hrubik is scheduled for his initial appearance in Akron Municipal Court on the new charges on Monday. He was originally charged with felonious assault and is being held in the Summit County Jail on $1 million bond.
Detectives said Hrubik admitted to shooting Fenwick in the latest of a long-standing dispute. Hrubik and his 25-year-old neighbor have a history of disputes that erupted into violence Wednesday near their apartments in the first block of West Crosier Street, according to Akron police.
Hrubik became irritated during their argument about 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, went and got a gun, came back and shot the man, detectives said. Hrubik reportedly shot the man multiple times with a revolver on the man’s porch.
Fenwick was listed in very serious condition immediately following the shooting. There are no documented incidents in police reports in the past four years that list either man as a victim or suspect in an altercation.
