Sandusky police: Woman charged, shooting was a 'setup'

Sandusky Register Staff • Jan 18, 2013 at 3:18 PM

Sandusky police said Wilson, 25, most recently of Fulton Street, has still not provided any information on the gunman in the shooting, who is still missing.

She did, however, say — according to police — that the incident was a "setup." Police said she told them she arranged a drug deal with Bartt Carruthers, her step-father, with the intent to rob him.

Carruthers, 49, was shot Wednesday night three times at a car wash in the 500 block of Perkins Avenue. He drove to a counseling center several blocks away and stumbled into the building where staff called 911. He is recovering at Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center in Toledo.

Police said the gunman, whose identity has not yet been released, should still be considered dangerous, but they believe the violence to be isolated to the botched robbery.

Wilson is held on $51,351 bond on the new charge and two unrelated warrants served on her Wednesday night.
