UPDATE: All three men arrested in connection to the shooting of two sisters last week were arraigned in Toledo Municipal Court on Tuesday and Wednesday morining.
At a hearing this morning, 20-year-old James Moore and 18-year-old Antwaine Jones faced charges of obstructing justice related to the shooting death of 1-year-old Keondra Hooks. Both men are being held at the Lucas County jail on a $500,000 bond.
The third man arrested on Tuesday, 20-year-old Keshawn Jennings, was arraigned yesterday on a charge of obstructing justice. He is currently booked at the Lucas County jail on a $500,000 bond.
Keondra and her 2-year-old sister, Leondra, were both shot early Thursday while they slept on the living room floor of their grandmother's apartment at Moody Manor. Keondra was struck in the head and died at the hospital later that morning. Leondra was hit in the chest and is recovering at a local hospital.
ORIGINAL STORY: Toledo Police say they have arrested 3 people in connection to the shooting of two sisters last week.
20-year-old Keshawn Jennings, 18-year-old Antwaine Jones, and 20-year-old James Moore have all been arrested and charged with obstructing justice.
Authorities say Jennings was arrested Monday; Jones and Moore were arrested Tuesday night.
Moore is also charged with 2 traffic related offenses.
Jennings is also accused of other crimes including "driving under suspension" and a violation involving food stamps.
According to documents provided by the Lucas County Sheriff's Office, Jennings is being held on a $500,000 bond, Jones on a $25,000 bond and no bond was listed for Moore.
A booking summary for Jones shows a prior arrest, earlier this year, for carrying a concealed weapon.
The charge is in connection to a shooting at Remy's Gentlemen's Club in June.
At the time, police identified Jones as one of the 4 people shot.
Another one of the victims was identified as James Moore.
It is unclear if the victim in the June shooting is the same James Moore that was arrested on Tuesday night.
A basic internet search shows that all three men have a prior arrest history.
Just hours before the mens' arrests were made public, a prayer vigil was held for 1-year-old Keondra Hooks, killed in the shooting, and her sister 2-year-old Leondra Hooks at the Moody Manor Apartments.
The pair were shot as they slept on the floor of their apartment at the complex.
Leondra Hooks is still recovering at a local hospital, from her injuries, but family members believe she might be able to go home later this week.
It is still unclear if the men arrested in the case will have more serious charges brought against them.
