On August 21, 2021, at approximately 4:10 a.m., Lake County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a gas station in the 41800 block of North Route 41, Wadsworth, for a report of shots fired. Deputies arrived and located numerous shell casings.
Preliminary investigation shows two vehicles drove into the parking lot and occupants of each vehicle exchanged gunfire. Both vehicles then fled from the scene. One of the vehicles involved was located a short distance away on Route 41, unoccupied. A sheriff’s canine team conducted a track from the vehicle, where it ended a short distance away, where those who fled from the vehicle are believed to have been picked up by another vehicle.
Nobody who remained at the scene was struck or injured during the gunfire, however, two uninvolved vehicles were struck by rounds.
Sheriff’s detectives are investigating.
