UPDATED: Sandusky man shot in head

Suspect still at large.
Sandusky Register Staff
Sep 24, 2013

A Sandusky man was shot in the head Monday morning at his Eddy Henry Way home, according to Sandusky police.

Despite the odds, Lee Donald, 34, is alive and talking at Firelands Regional Medical Center.

He was inside his home in the 1900 block of Eddy Henry Way when at about 4 a.m. he suffered a single gunshot wound to the head, police said. Detectives are scrambling to whittle down the list of possible suspects, but as of Monday evening they had yet to make an arrest.

Emergency dispatchers received an exceptionally calm 911 call from a woman at about 4:10 a.m.

“I’m right here ... what’s the address?” the woman is heard saying to someone with her during the recorded 911 call. When the dispatcher asks her to explain the emergency, the woman replies, “Um, someone got shot.”

The call was then disconnected. The county’s dispatching system, which pinpoints the location of calls made to 911, traced the call to the home where Donald was shot.    At about the same time, officers received a call from Firelands Regional Medical Center, alerting them to a shooting victim in the emergency room, Sandusky police Detective Gary Wichman said.

Hospital surveillance footage showed a dark SUV drop off Donald. Officers held a woman in custody Monday afternoon and searched her vehicle, as it matched the description of the SUV at the hospital, but she was released later in the day.

Her vehicle is not the one police are searching for, Wichman said. Detectives are still trying to find the person who dropped Donald off at the hospital.

Donald later told detectives he has no idea who shot him, Wichman said. He told police he was sitting in his living room watching television when he heard someone pounding on his door. He said he opened the door, but he remembers nothing beyond that.

Monday morning, detectives placed police tape around the home and processed the scene for several hours.

The main door had an apparent bullet hole in it, and officers found a handgun shell casing inside the house.

Officers also seized trace amounts of marijuana from the home, Wichman said.

Donald is a registered sex offender who has been charged with numerous crimes over the past 15 years, including rape, assault, trespassing, theft, menacing, disorderly conduct and various drug and traffic offenses, according to court documents. In September 2010, he was the victim of an apparent knife fight outside a Perkins Avenue bar.

At the time, he told police he had no idea who assaulted him, according to a past Register article.

At about 11 a.m. Monday, meanwhile, a group of Donald’s friends and relatives showed up at the hospital with plans to visit him, police said. Officers asked the group to leave, and they arrested Rayshawn Grant, 35, of the 1000 block of W. Washington St., charging him with disorderly conduct and obstruction.

Police have not speculated on a motive for the shooting, although Donald’s friends said they suspect it was related to an argument involving a woman.

 

PREVIOUS STORY
A Sandusky man was shot once in the head at about 4 a.m. Monday inside his home on Eddy Henry Way, police said.

Lee Donald, 34, of the 1900 block of Eddy Henry Way, remains in the intensive care unit at Firelands Regional Medical Center. He was conscious and answering detectives' questions when they spoke to him at the hospital shortly after the incident, Sandusky police Detective Gary Wichman said.

Police are still gathering details and tracking down possible leads on suspects.

Wichman said a handgun was likely used in the assault, given the nature of Donald's wound.

Police were also called to the hospital later Monday morning when up to 15 people showed up, intending to visit Donald in the intensive care unit. One person was arrested at the hospital: Rayshaun Grant, 35, of Sandusky, was charged with disorderly conduct, police said.

Ms.Psych101

You know what I find amazing? NEVER once when an article appears in this newspaper about someone of the "CAUCASIAN PERSUASION" doing something wrong or something wrong being done to them, no one ever goes and looks up that person's criminal record and then posts it on here! Now, why is that? Oh, I forgot, it's because ONLY black folks have criminal records, right? So, it is YOUR duty to let everyone know! Wonder what skeletons any of you have hiding in ya'lls closets, that might come out? Cause of course you all are "perfect angels", right? LMAO!

Kelly

Where does it say what race he is?

Dolph02

Right!!

Ms.Psych101

@Kelly, give me a break! Anytime an article like this is in the Sandusky Register, race doesn't have to be mentioned! Judgmental people, automatically assume that the person is BLACK! Now, I know for a fact what race Mr. Donald is, however the person who felt the need to go look up Mr. Donald's criminal record assumes that Mr. Donald is Black. I say this because, as I already stated in my first post, NO ONE EVER posts up a Caucasian person's criminal record when he/she makes it into the paper for some type of criminal activity, am I right or am I wrong on this? I have yet to see that happen at all! Ask your fellow (judgmental) posters why they feel the need to ONLY post criminal records of the people that they know to be Black or based on details in articles, ASSUME to be Black? Point here is, it doesn't have to mention race, people base their assumption(s) on the details in the article, and then go search through records on Sandusky Municipal Court's website, just to prove some idiotic point of this person having a criminal record. In this case, I do not see the significance of Mr. Donald having a criminal record, justifying him being shot. SO......... don't ask me where does it mention race, ask the poster why he/she assumes that Mr. Donald is black, because when it comes down to it, THAT IS THE ONLY REASON why he/she posted Mr. Donald's criminal record, whether YOU (or the poster) wants to admit it or not!!!

Kelly

Once again, where in the story does it say what race he is? The person who posted his criminal record never made any mention of race...never even implied it. You're the one that sounds racist.

BEHAPPY

Sorry MSPSYCH but you sound VERY paranoid! I never saw anyone even mention "black" until you did~who said anyone was assuming? YOU~~~~typical!

SKULLNBONES

Crime statistics in Sandusky validate the assumption, even though the article didn't mention the race of anyone involved. That community needs to get its act together or get outta Dodge.

gramafun

Ms Psych, you are wrong. Remember the man shot behind the car wash? His stepdaughter was white and they posted her rap sheet (rather long one, too). Sorry I don't recall her name but remember her face and red hair. So your point is a little off. And your remarks are unfounded.

deertracker

FYI: Everyone on here knows GI Joe aka Knuckledragger is a RACIST! However, he is an equal opportunity racist/hater. He hates blacks, gays, Latinos, lesbians, Muslims, poor people, sick people and the list goes on and on and on! Who cares really? MsPsych does have a point and she is speaking the truth! If you have spent any time on here you know what she is saying is true. Personally I don't care. Racism is a way of life for BLACKS. IT WILL NEVER CHANGE.

KnuckleDragger

Ahh yes, another dimwit comment from deerturd aka "the great white guilt" pretending he knows what it's like to walk in the shoes of a black man. You are right about one thing though, I hate everyone, I'm an equal opportunity hater...I'm no more a racist than you are black. Now go away little man, since you have nothing useful to add.

deertracker

That settles it then and I rest my case because I am about as black as they come. Own it Queen, own it!!!!!!!!!!

KnuckleDragger

Must I now go back and repost the numerous posts where you claim to be a white man, married to a black woman? I personally could care less whether you are black of white, but your incessant lying speaks volumes as to your character, or should I say lack of. Every regular poster on here already knows that you are nothing more than a race baiter. When was the last time you contributed something to a conversation that was worth a darn? At any rate your post show your ignorance and immaturity. Now you can own that, little guy.

deertracker

I challenge you to go back and find ANY post where I claimed to be white! BRING IT!

Dr. Information

So posting a guys LONG record is now racist. Oh how deer shows how weak he is by throwing out the race card early.

deertracker

Can you read doc? Can you??? GI Joe was a racist long before this article and I never mentioned a word about posting the guy's rap sheet. I was simply agreeing with MsPsych and pointing out the obvious.

KnuckleDragger

Deertracker is nothing but a race baiting troll. I should stop indulging him but his ignorance is so entertaining.

deertracker

You just hate it when anyone calls BS on your BS!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kelly

Also, how do you know what race anyone commenting is?

BEHAPPY

Here we go AGAIN!! Didn't take long for the race card to be thrown! Why is that? NEVER fails! I have seen MANY, MANY "caucasian persuasion" criminal records posted here MANY, MANY times. GIVE IT A REST! All you have to do is behave yourselves~that simple~NO problems! ;)

Buggers78

Thank you! Anytime something bad happens to someone. The victim's past is displayed .. Granted he does not sound like a fine upstanding citizen, but who are we to use his past as a reason to justify why this happened?!? The man was still shot in the head!

Everyone is fam...

Oh here we go with the race card. I have seen with my own two eyes WHITE people's public records posted on these newspaper sites, so give it a rest. Do you know who Christopher Lane is? Probably not. But I'm sure you know who Treyvon Martin is. http://m.washingtontimes.com/new... Just one example of racism against the white race.

cockynurse

Play nice

Swiftshot

Really ignorant! Sounds like you post just to get a reaction. The records show that he probably isn't changing his ways. Nothing is posted about his race. If you have taken psych classes, you should know that socioeconomic standings play a part in ones outcome. Change is highly unlikely. Having said that, it sounds like you are so sensitive because you are close to the Donald's or you are black. Don't take your personal frustration out on someone that posts reality.

Common Sense

In reply to Ms. Psych:
Although I do not have the resources to prove your allegation, I believe I have seen court records of people of the "Caucasian Persuasion" copied and pasted into this forum. The posting of any criminal records of anyone is to demonstrate that the person whose record is posted has dealt with the law before this incident.
It is not the duty of anyone to let everyone know of someone else's past history. However, I believe the real reason people post it is to point out repeat offenders that have been handed down penalties that did nothing to rehabilitate their erroneous ways.
Perhaps, instead of turning this into a racial issue, you should consider that s suspect with a history is still in the area and is considered armed and dangerous.

Mum-of-One

You can't have citizens shooting each other, no matter what. This is not how its done in civilization.

From the Grave

This guy's rap sheet is longer than my...grave is deep.

jstus2001

I think it was a case of profiling. LOL

KnuckleDragger

Yeah, profiling one drug dealer trying to take out another. But hey the like of psycho101 and deerturd have to insert race into everything, even when there was no hint of the race in neither the article or the posting.

deertracker

A picture paints a thousand words or one black guy!
