The actual shooter, meanwhile, remains at large.

Laura Purcell, 23, was charged with obstructing official business, complicity to aggravated robbery and possession of drugs.

"We've already had her in here once," Sandusky police Detective Gary Wichman said. "Let's say she didn't tell us the whole truth."

Since the initial interviews, several "very reliable" confidential informants have told police that Purcell was in a car at the shooting scene that night on West Perkins Avenue.

Police are now hoping to get her to talk. Purcell remains in the jail on $31,200 bond.
