Fugitive arrested after shooting incident

AKRON -- A wanted man is now in custody after a shooting incident last week.

Akron Police say 20-year-old Jonathan Shane Wilt was taken into custody at a home in the 900 block of Avon Street.

Wilt was wanted for three counts of felonious assault after allegedly opening fire on April 8 in the front yard of a house in the 2100 block of 5th Street SW.

Police say the shots missed two males in the front yard, but a stray bullet went through a front door, through a wall and struck an appliance delivery man inside.

The victim suffered injuries that police say are not life-threatening.

Wilt has been booked in the Summit County Jail.
