    The mass shooting took place at around 2am on Monday inside a two-story home in the 100 block of Perry Street in Struthers on the Ohio-Pennsylvania border.
    Struthers Police Chief Tim Roddy said during a press briefing this afternoon that the gunman made his way inside the home and began yelling at the people inside.

    David Sweeney, Rowan's father, was not at the home on Perry Street and was unharmed

    Meanwhile, Rowan's father, David Sweeney, delivered an emotional statement, calling his son's killer a 'coward' and a 'scumbag,' and urging him to 'be a man' and turn himself in.
    'Rowan was the sweetest boy,' Sweeney said in a voice trembling with emotion. 'Rowan was the best. He is so young. He didn't deserve any of this... buddy, I'm so sorry, for you, buddy. I love you.'

    Then addressing the killer directly, Sweeney said through sobs: 'you're sick, dude. you're sick. You took my son from me...you can live with that for the rest of your life.'

    Police described the suspect as a thin, light-skinned black man who was last seen wearing a black jacket.
    Chief Roddy stressed that it was not a random act of violence but rather a targeted attack.
    According to the chief, investigators have several 'good' leads they are following at this time.

    He also revealed that police had been called to the home a week ago for a report of a drug overdose involving one of the people who were shot on Monday.
    When officers arrived on the scene, the person who overdosed had fled and had to be chased to make sure he received treatment.

    The Mahoning County Homicide Task Force and several police departments in the area are helping Struthers police with the investigation.
