Van Wert man avoids indictment in shooting

VAN WERT, Ohio — A Van Wert County grand jury has declined to return an indictment against a city resident in connection with a shooting during a domestic disturbance last month, the county prosecutor said yesterday.

Prosecutor Charles Kennedy said the grand jury on Friday did not indict Richard Rable, 49, who was arrested after he allegedly shot a Convoy man during a confrontation between the victim and his ex-girlfriend.

Mr. Rable was charged Oct. 14 with one count of felonious assault, a second-degree felony, for allegedly shooting Robert King, 25, after Mr. King got into a fight with a woman. Authorities said Mr. Rable fired a warning shot into the air, then shot Mr. King.
