Ohio Self-Defense-Bond set for College Hill break-in suspect :: 09/15/2014
The man Cincinnati police say fled a College Hill residential break-in that led to a juvenile being shot earlier this week is under arrest. Jerald Davis, 34, was booked into the Hamilton County jail on a burglary charge late Tuesday.
His bond was set at $250,000 during a brief court appearance Wednesday.
Davis pleaded not guilty to prying into a Groesbeck Road home with a crowbar early Monday. The commotion woke the homeowner, Marlo White, 37, who was sleeping on the third story.
He grabbed for his gun, but it wasn't loaded. Police say a startled Davis ran outside.
That's where two teenagers, 14 and 15, were standing as they waited for Davis.
The homeowner loaded his gun and fired at the teens, striking and wounding the 15-year-old.
The juvenile is expected to recover and was charged with burglary Tuesday, along with the 14-year-old.
Davis ran off and remained at large until his arrest.
He has a lengthy criminal record with several arrests court records show, but it's mostly for low-level crimes such as possession of marijuana, theft, minor drug abuse and disorderly conduct.
