UPDATE: According to a MetroHealth Medical Center Spokesperson, Jonathan Rosenbaum’s condition has been upgraded today from Serious to Fair.

Authorities have made no arrests in connection with the shooting that took place Saturday afternoon at the Sportsmen Gun & Reel Club on Middle Ridge Road in Amherst Township.

Authorities say that Rosenbaum was shooting Skeet with his son and a friend when the incident occurred around noon. Rosenbaum’s son, Aaron, had just stepped off the block from shooting and his dad stepped up. As Aaron was stepping off he said he had a shell jammed, as he tried to get it dislodged the gun – a 12-gauge with #9 Shot Shells – went off striking his father, who was only a few feet away, in the back.

Aaron was using his father’s gun at the time because his was being repaired; authorities say that might have played a part in the incident because Aaron was unfamiliar with his father’s gun.

Once the investigation by the Sheriff’s Department is completed they will turn it over to the Lorain County Prosecutors Office to determine if any charges will be filed.
