Both Timothy Antoine, 18, of 5032 Harvest Ln. and Chase Schumacher, 18, of 3817 Waldorf Dr. were arraigned Thursday in Toledo Municipal Court.

Mr. Antoine — charged with felonious assault, failure to comply, obstructing official business, and resisting arrest — was ordered to remain in jail in lieu of $125,000 bond.

Bond for Mr. Schumacher — charged with felonious assault and carrying a concealed weapon — was set at $150,000.

The two suspects went to Major Kleen Laundry, 4044 Airport Hwy., on Wednesday as Terry Floyd, Jr., 21, was doing laundry with his girlfriend.

Police said Mr. Schumacher, who was armed with a 9 mm handgun, went into the laundromat to use the restroom and ended up in a verbal disagreement with Mr. Floyd.

The suspects left and returned at about 5:20 p.m. to the parking lot, where they met Mr. Floyd. From inside a blue Dodge Neon driven by Mr. Antoine, Mr. Schumacher allegedly fired “numerous shots” at the victim, who was struck once in his right side, police said.

Mr. Floyd was taken to the University of Toledo Medical Center, the former Medical College of Ohio, for treatment. A spokesman said on Thursday that the victim had been treated and released.

After the shooting, the suspects took off and led police on a high-speed, multi-jurisdiction chase.

Mr. Antoine allegedly drove into oncoming traffic to avoid red lights and swerved around vehicles at major intersections while attempting to elude police.

An Ottawa Hills police officer listening to Toledo police radio traffic spotted the suspect vehicle entering the village on Richards Road. Once the officer had backup, police chased the vehicle, which stopped briefly on Reynolds Road so Mr. Schumacher could get out of the car, said Ottawa Hills police Chief John Wenzlick.

There, Mr. Schumacher, who was not armed at that point, was taken into custody by Ottawa Hills police. He was eventually turned over to Toledo police, Chief Wenzlick said.

The suspect vehicle fled and, on Talmadge Road near West Sylvania Avenue, Sylvania Township and Toledo police officers again picked up the chase. The suspect was taken into custody after a “brief struggle” with Toledo officers at Laskey and Secor roads.

Police recovered the gun used in the shooting from where Mr. Schumacher bailed from the getaway vehicle. It was not known who owns the gun.
