Ohio man cleaning gun wounds neighbor in adjacent apartment
CANTON, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say a convicted felon has shot and wounded a woman in an apartment below his after a handgun fired while he was cleaning it.
The Repository of Canton reports that a 43-year-old Canton man was arrested Tuesday night after a 53-year-old woman living beneath him was shot in the chest. She was taken to a hospital where the bullet was removed. A Canton police lieutenant told the newspaper the woman was in stable condition after surgery.
Police say the man they arrested isn’t allowed to have firearms because of a previous felonious assault conviction.
The newspaper reports the man is jailed on a $50,000 bond and is expected to appear later today in Canton Municipal Court.
