BREAKING NEWS: Shots fired at Wadsworth Wal-Mart

WADSWORTH — Two of three Doylestown residents involved in a fight during which shots were fired late Monday night pleaded guilty Tuesday to charges relating to the incident at Super Wal-Mart.

Joshua Ross, 18, pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor assault charge, and Brandy Ross, 20, pleaded guilty to a charge of complicity to commit assault, a spokeswoman at Wadsworth Municipal Court said.

Another suspect, Brian Milici, 26, was charged with felonious assault and is still in the Medina County Jail on $250,000 bond, awaiting a preliminary hearing on Jan. 21 at 11:45 a.m., the spokeswoman said.

Just before midnight Monday, a 19-year-old Barberton man reportedly was involved in an argument with the three Doylestown residents in the parking lot of Wal-Mart, 222 E. Smokerise Drive, said Lt. Robert Wyrick, the city’s acting police chief.

As the altercation escalated, a gun was revealed and shots went off. The Barberton resident sustained injuries to the head but he was not shot, Wyrick said.

The Barberton man was treated at Akron City Hospital and released, the lieutenant said.
