A Sandusky man allegedly fired gunshots at two 17-year-old boys Saturday, inflicting non-life threatening injuries and running off before police arrived.

One bullet grazed a boy's left eyebrow, while another passed through the other boy's shoe, injuring his foot.

The incident occurred near Hancock and Neil streets.

As of Sunday night, police were still searching for Tevin J. Williams, 20, of the 400 block Neil St., who witnesses claim fired the shots, according to a Sandusky police report.

He is facing two charges of felonious assault, as well as one charge of having weapons while under disability, because of previous felony drug offenses.

A relative drove the injured pair to Firelands Regional Medical Center shortly after the incident, according to the report.

When one victim's family members arrived at the hospital, the situation escalated into a frenzy.

The woman threatened hospital staff because they wouldn't let her see the boy without properly identifying her as a family member first, according to a separate Sandusky police report.

Jasmenda K. Brown, 40, of the 600 block of Camp St., allegedly threatened to spit in a nurse's face and told a security staff member she was going to punch and kill him.

Sandusky police responded to the emergency room at about 5:20 p.m. and charged her with persistent disorderly conduct and aggravated menacing.

After she calmed down and hospital staff properly identified her, they let her enter the boy's room.

During the incident, Firelands Regional Medical Center staff members hit their panic alarm because of Brown's threats, according to the report.

As a result, some individuals on social media Friday falsely claimed the incident was a shooting in the hospital's emergency room.

After police spoke with the two victims at the hospital, they searched the area where the shooting allegedly took place, and a witness approached them to offer more information.

The woman told officers she saw a group of people fighting in the street, and one person struck someone in the head with a baseball bat, according to the report.

She then heard gunshots, and a few people ran off to an apartment where Williams lives. 

Police knocked on the apartment's damaged door Saturday evening and it opened on its own, but no one was inside.

This is where my tax dollars go, to deal with these nut cases. Forget it, let them kill each other.

Yes it is. Your suggestion ain't going to happen. Although I may kind of emotionally agree with you, can't let it happen. Are the police the greedy ones you have been talking about?

They have a job to do, I've heard some tell others their career was a choice, same here.
Doing your job whether it is dangerous or not does not give a representing body the right to extort money from citizens.

Felonious assault? Should be attempted murder, that's the problem these scumbags don't get $hit for shooting at somebody so they will just do it again, sad part is even if they charged him with attempted murder they would of just dropped it to a felonious assault anyways.

Sandusky is turning into a ghetto! Why haven't we heard from the NAACP? Where are the black leaders??

Al and Jesse will show up when:

A. There's a white on black crime.

B. There's money or publicity in it.

A plays into B .. Give it time.

NAACP only gets involved when the white's pick on the black's. Sandusky is getting as bad as Detroit. Sandusky used to be a real nice place to live, but it's now a dumping ground. It is a shame that the powers of the City let's this crap continue.

No more tax money for Sandusky until the mostly Dem commission deals with it's constituents .
NAACP is no longer concerned with lifting blacks up, it just wants to reek havoc and exact revenge, and reparations.

When the only tool you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail:

"The woman threatened hospital staff because they wouldn't let her see the boy without properly identifying her as a family member first, according to a separate Sandusky police report.

Jasmenda K. Brown, 40, of the 600 block of Camp St., allegedly threatened to spit in a nurse's face and told a security staff member she was going to punch and kill him."

Their community doesn't have other ways of communicating.
