TEEN CHARGED FOR INDUCING PANIC
Police received a tip from a citizen that two black males were on the side of the old Dairy Mart on Lake Ave with a gun. The man told Police that one of the two males fired the gun several times pointing south. The male who fired the gun tossed it into a white car that left the scene at a high rate of speed. The two teens began walking south on Lake towards the Police Station heading into downtown.
The two teens were spotted quickly by Police just after the railroad overpass near the back lot of Muny Court. Officers surrounded the suspects and ordered them to the ground. Both suspects were searched and cuffed.
One of the two teens, 17 year old Clint Jackson of Elyria, matched the description given by the witness exactly. Jackson and his friend 17 year old Que Gray of Elyria, were both taken to the Elyria Police Department. Gray was later released to family while Jackson was taken to the Lorain County Jail and charged with Inducing Panic and Discharging a Firearm.
A 9 mm shell casing was found in the parking lot of Dairy Mart.
