Man in jail on charge of shooting teenager

A 19-year-old West Manhattan Boulevard man remained in the Lucas County jail last night charged with the shooting of a teenager in his home late Tuesday.

Richard Perry of 447 West Manhattan, who was charged with felonious assault, was arraigned by Toledo Municipal Court Judge Gene Zmuda yesterday. Bond was set at $25,000.

Deante McCorvey, 18, of 2833 Rockwood Place was in critical condition yesterday in St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center.

Police Lt. Rick Reed said authorities believe that the men were in Mr. Perry's basement horse-playing with the gun when it went off, hitting Mr. McCorvey in the head.
