Trio accused of firing BBs at Warren home, striking teen
Police have charged three people accused of firing BB guns at a Warren home and a teenager who lived there.
Officers were called to the 400 block of Ohio Avenue NW just after midnight Tuesday when the 72-year-old homeowner told dispatchers that two windows had been shot out and her fourteen-year-old grandson had been shot.
Officers were told that the homeowner sent her grandchildren outside after hearing a noise. The grandchildren said they saw 23-year-old Zackary Woomer of Warren standing outside.
According to the police report, 22-year-old Baylee McCune and 25-year-old Dakota Casseday, both of Windham, were inside a car firing BBs at a car in the driveway.
One of the shots reportedly ricocheted, striking the 14-year-old grandson in the leg.
Police say a Ford Fusion which was driving away from the house as they arrived was pulled over a couple of blocks away on McMyler Street NW.
Inside the car, police found a Daisy air rifle and a Red Ryder BB gun. Police say Woomer had airgun pellets in his pocket.
Woomer claimed he came to the home to investigate after the home of his deceased mother had been damaged by BBs the night before.
The three suspects were booked into the county jail on charges of felonious assault.
Woomer pleaded not guilty to that charge, as well as one count of criminal damaging.
In addition to facing arraignment in Warren Municipal Court on Wednesday for the felonious assault charges, McCune and Cassadee are wanted in Portage County after being indicted on charges of identity fraud and theft.
