A Toledo man who was shot by a carryout owner on Monday night was arraigned today in Toledo Municipal Court.
Jerold Riley, who also goes by Jerold Evans, 19, of 855 Avondale Ave., is charged with carrying a concealed weapon and aggravated menacing. His bond was set at $120,000 and he was ordered to remain in the Lucas County jail. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for July 16.
Mr. Riley, who is on probation for a domestic violence conviction, was shot by Bobby Howard, 71, the owner of Howard‘s Drive-Thru, 1001 Nebraska Ave. Mr. Riley was inside the central Toledo carryout on Monday night, allegedly with a gun, and making threats to his ex-girlfriend. At some point, Mr. Howard pulled out a gun and shot Mr. Riley once in the back.
Mr. Howard is not charged and police do not anticipate that will change, citing self defense.
