OH:Gang Confronts man, four Wounded

Four men with significant criminal histories go to a man's home, presumably to harass or attack him. He is in the process of obtaining a restraining order against at least one of them. Multiple assailants constitute a deadly threat. It sounds like he defended himself, then was arrested. Much, of course, will depend on the details.

OBERLIN — Four young men were wounded and the man suspected of shooting them is in custody after an argument around 11:30 p.m. Thursday in a parking lot on West College Street, according to police and witnesses.

Police Lt. Kevin Scalli described the victims’ wounds as non-life threatening and said the suspected shooter was arrested without incident.

Sean M. Woodings, 24, of Oberlin has been charged with four counts of felonious assault, Lt. Mike McCloskey said Friday afternoon.


According to the prosecutor, each of the alleged victims has a significant criminal history, including crimes of violence. The Oberlin Municipal Court docket states that Woodings was at his home, and it appeared that the alleged victims were trespassing and that at least one of the victims was told not to be at his home.

Woodings was in the process of obtaining a Civil Protection Order against one of the victims before the shooting, according to court documents.

Woodings’ written statement said he was prompted to use his gun before he was harmed by one of the alleged victims.
