NOBLE COUNTY, Ohio - The Noble County Sheriff's Office is investigating a shooting that took place on Monday that left one man injured.
Today NEWS9 learned that police have made two arrests in connection with that shooting.
Police arrested Troy C. Gray and Steven A. Lenarz and they are facing felonious assault charges.
A third suspect, a juvenile, has also been charged and served with a complaint in the shooting.
A request by a woman for a sheriff's deputy at a resident's home was the initial call that deputies received at 8:30 p.m. on Monday. While they were on the way, the woman called again saying that shots had been fired.
"My deputies disarmed two men," Sheriff Stephen Hannum said. "I called in the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigations and had them help with securing our crime scene and collecting evidence."
That shooting left 46-year-old Jackie Siddle injured. When police arrived at the home on Pipa Road, they found Siddle lying near his car with gunshot wounds.
Hannum said that Siddle went to the home before an altercation occurred.
"When he got there there was a confrontation and Mr. Siddle ended up getting shot," Hannum said. "The preliminary report says it is probably multiple times."
BCI helped process the scene and gather evidence. After talking to witnesses they arrested Gray and Lenarz.
"We have also served a juvenile with a complaint," Hannum said. "So in total, two adults and one juvenile."
Hannum told NEWS9 that police are continuing to follow up with witnesses and will investigate this case further.
More charges could be coming against the suspects and the Sheriff's Office will present all of the evidence collected to the next grand jury.
