A second person has been arrested for shooting out a window of a Toledo police cruiser last week with a BB gun.

Logan LeComte, 19, of 1211 Starr Ave. is charged with felonious assault and vandalism. He was ordered held in the Lucas County jail in lieu of $100,000 bond, during a court hearing Tuesday.

Police had initially charged Jonathan Figuero, 20, of the same Starr Avenue address, for the crime, but subsequent interviews led to the arrest of Mr. LeComte, who police claim confessed to having shot out a patrol car window on Jan. 15 in East Toledo. The charges against Mr. Figuero charges will be changed to tampering with evidence and obstructing official business, police said.

Two Toledo police officers were driving in the 1200 block of Starr when officers heard a single shot and the passenger-side window almost simultaneously shattered. The officers chased the suspect on foot, but lost sight of him near Platt Street.
