A firefighter who was shot back in December while on a call is back on the job today. Youngstown's Fire Chief John O'Neill, Jr. tells us it will be the first day back for Lt. Paul Lutton, who was driving a fire engine when a gunman opened fire on the city's North Side in December. A bullet struck Lutton's right leg, embedding shrapnel in his calf. One of the other three shots fired grazed the coat of firefighter Dwayne Montogmery. Police were investigating the possibility that Cameron Dyer of Youngstown was the person who fired the shots at the truck on Halleck Street. Dyer is scheduled to go on trial next week on a charge of disrupting public services for allegedly arguing with firefighters while they were battling that blaze.
