Man shot; police have suspect
No arrests made yet in Possum Run Road incident
MANSFIELD — Authorities say they know who shot a man Monday night on Possum Run Road, but at press time could not reveal the shooter’s name.
Sgt. Mike Viars, of the Richland County Sheriff’s Department, said the incident started at a home, 3246 Possum Run Road, approximately a half-mile from where the victim was stopped by police as he attempted to leave the scene around 10:45 p.m.
“There was a verbal altercation that turned physical,” Viars said.
He said the woman who owns the home is accusing the shooting victim, and the woman he was with, of stealing her firearm.
Viars said the two parties know each other.
Viars said someone shot the man in the back as he attempted to drive away in a black Grand Am. His passenger, unharmed, was placed in the back of a cruiser for questioning.
The victim was taken by Washington Township EMS to MedCentral/Mansfield Hospital. He was conscious and speaking to medics as they assisted him.
His bloody gray shirt lie on the ground near his black ball cap containing two cellphones, as he was carried away from the scene.
Viars said the Richland County Prosecutor’s Office will determine charges, but none were processed by midnight last night.
“We do know the identity of the shooter and all involved have been identified, but no arrests have been made,” Viars said.
