Toledoan charged with assault in shooting

A Toledo man accused of shooting his ex-girlfriend’s new boyfriend remained in the Lucas County jail Friday evening in lieu of bond following his arrest Thursday.

Rashad Gaines, 21, of 907 Paxton St., is charged with two counts of felonious assault. Bond was set at $200,000 during arraignment Friday in Toledo Municipal Court.

Steven Parks, 27, was shot in the back while in bed at his girlfriend’s house in the 1100 block of Country Creek Lane last Saturday. After shooting Mr. Parks, the gunman paced back and forth saying he should have shot the woman, the victim told police.

After some pleading from the woman and victim, the gunman allowed them to go to a hospital, according to the report.
