Perrysburg man, 52, guilty in shooting


BOWLING GREEN — A Perrysburg man admitted in court Wednesday that he fired a gun into an occupied vehicle last summer.

John Vandersall, 52, pleaded guilty in Wood County Common Pleas Court to two counts of felonious assault, both with firearms specifications, and one count of improperly discharging a firearm. The charges carry specifications that will require Vandersall to forfeit a Kimber .45-caliber semiautomatic gun and a 1994 Chevrolet pickup he used to commit the crime.

Judge Robert Pollex scheduled sentencing for Nov. 26. As part of the plea agreement, prosecutors plan to ask the court to dismiss two counts of attempted murder and one count of improperly handling firearms in a motor vehicle.

Vandersall, who is being held in the Wood County jail, fired shots Aug. 14, 2012, on West South Boundary Street near Mulberry Street in Perrysburg at a sport utility vehicle occupied by Joyce Farmer-Schneider and Jack J. Schneider. Neither was struck.
