Authorities have arrested a man they say took part in a shooting at an Adrian park filled with children in May.
27-year-old Jacob Edmond was taken into custody by U.S. Marshals around 4 p.m. Tuesday at a home on Collomore Road in Toledo.
Adrian Police allege that Edmond was a passenger in a sport-utility vehicle that pulled up to a group of people at Adrian Park on May 9 and began shooting, injuring two people.
Edmond is being held in the Lucas County Jail awaiting extradition to Michigan.
According to U.S. Marshals, Edmond has a violent criminal history. He was released from the prison in November after serving more than five years on drug, assault, and resisting police charges.
Toledo Police and the Lucas County Sheriff's Office also helped in apprehending Edmond. "This arrest is the perfect example of cooperation between federal, state and local law enforcement," said Pete Elliott, the U.S. Marshal for the Northern District of Ohio. "And the commitment of those agencies to apprehend dangerous felons wanted for violent crimes."
