A man accused of shooting a gun in downtown Toledo was arraigned today in Toledo Municipal Court.

Joshua Gibson, 23, of 823 Ambia St., is charged with obstructing official business, resisting arrest, improper discharge of a firearm, and carrying a concealed weapon. He was ordered to be held in the Lucas County jail in lieu of $100,000 bond.

Police allege that Mr. Gibson was in downtown Toledo, outside Le Pam Pam convenience store, 901 Madison Ave., Tuesday afternoon showing off a 25-caliber handgun when it discharged and shot into a door.

Mr. Gibson and Dorian Williams ran from authorities, police said, but they were both eventually caught and arrested in a parking lot behind the Toledo Area Regional Transit Authority bus stop at North Erie and Jackson streets.

Mr. Gibson reportedly had the gun in his right front pocket when he was arrested, police said.

Mr. Williams, 19, of 260 Graham St., was also arrested on five warrants, police said.

No injuries were reported.
