Two shooting suspects arrested

Third still at large in connection to Monday shooting.

Sandusky police arrested two suspects and are searching for a third allegedly involved a Monday-morning shooting on Eddy Henry Way.

Morgan Weatherspoon, 20, of the 1200 block of Buchanan St., was charged with complicity to attempted murder and complicity to attempted aggravated robbery.

Stanley Frankart, 22, of the 1900 block of Adrian Circle, was charged with attempted murder and aggravated robbery.

A third man is still on the run, but detectives believe he’s still hiding somewhere in the Sandusky area. Jaron “David” Ashburn, 23, of the 2700 block of Carbon Ave., is wanted on the same charges as Frankart, Sandusky police Detective Gary Wichman said.

Anyone with information on Ashburn’s whereabouts can call police at 419-627-5858.

“Anonymous tips and a review of phone records basically broke (the case) open,” Wichman said.

Lee Donald, 34, was inside his Eddy Henry Way house at 4 a.m. Monday when someone began pounding on the front door. When he peeled back a curtain, someone fired a single 9mm round through the window. The bullet pierced Donald’s left temple and exited his skull behind the left ear, Wichman said.

Donald remains at Firelands Regional Medical Center, where he’s expected to make a full recovery other than suffering some possible hearing loss, Wichman said.

Weatherspoon was arrested Monday night, while deputies located Frankart in Ottawa County the following day.

Phone records, witness testimony and anonymous tips led detectives to Weatherspoon’s home, which Frankart and Ashburn allegedly used as a staging area for the planned robbery of Donald’s home, Wichman said.

“She enabled these two,” Wichman said. “She offered them information about different things in Donald’s home.”

Weatherspoon was an on-again, off-again girlfriend of Donald’s, Wichman said. She was not present during Monday’s robbery.

Donald was known to be flashy with his money, and he was carrying $1,000 cash Monday morning, Wichman said. He also had quite a few expensive items in his home.

Officers originally held another woman for questioning on Monday, but they later released her after determining she was not involved.

Ms.Psych101

OR maybe he works a FULL-TIME job making more than minimum wage. There are a lot of folks around here that do work factory jobs making $10 - $14 per hour, and who choose to work overtime hours as well so that they can make extra money. People should not always assume that when anyone has money it came by way of anything bad or illegal. My suggestion to you; stop being so closed minded!

Professor Playdoh

Isn't that David Ruffin from The Temptations? Or maybe the guy that Played David in the movies. To bad he ended up in trouble in Sandusky. He looks so young in his picture.

deertracker

The other guy looks like Sinbad!

bobshumway92

Darn white people.

KnuckleDragger

Yup, what's with all these crackers committing crimes in Sandtown. LOL

Ms.Psych101

You're being sarcastic - however, are you seriously trying to say that there have been no white people who have committed ANY type of crimes in the city of Sandusky as of lately? Hmmmm....I beg to differ, how about going to look on the Erie County Jail website where they have a list of mugshots,names,charges, etc. Yea, there are Black people on there, BUT there seem to be MORE white folks in the Erie County jail at this time than Black folks... LoL at that! Oh, and if you don't believe it, like I said go take a look for yourself!

big red

Lol to that....maybe its because the black folks are in prison...lol to that

Ms.Psych101

Yea, and where exactly do you think the people in jail are headed?

KURTje

What's one word you don't want to call them that starts with n & ends with r? Neighbor.

KnuckleDragger

LOL.

Big Poppy

Mr. Assburn looks like Whoopi Goldberg

bobshumway92

Y'all white folks need to control yo selves!

Ms.Psych101

Your attempt at being funny just makes YOU look ignorant. Intelligent (Black) people most definitely do not speak in that manner, at least not the ones that I come from. Stop it, you just make yourself seem like you're lacking in intelligence.

deertracker

No act! He does lack intelligence!

bobshumway92

Y'all white folks is ignorant
