OBERLIN, Ohio - Oberlin police tell NewsChannel5 that four people were shot in the parking lot of an apartment complex in the 500 block of West College Street around 11:30 p.m. Thursday.
Police said that the four victims were able to run from the parking lot to a neighboring apartment complex and call for help.
A 22-year-old victim suffered a grazing wound to the head. Two victims, 17 and 23 years old, were struck in lower extremities and a 26-year-old was wounded on the arm. The victim’ injuries were non-life threatening and they were treated and released.
Police have one 24-year-old suspect in custody, who they have identified as Sean Woodings. He was charged with four counts of felonious assault.
The initial investigation indicates the incident may have been a result of an escalating dispute between the shooter and at least one of the victims, according to police. They said a 9-mm handgun and eight spent shell casings were recovered at the scene.
The shooting remains under investigation.
