BOARDMAN, Ohio (WKBN) – A Boardman man faced a judge Thursday, while still in a wheelchair from injuries suffered in a confrontation with police.
Stephen Wilson, 52, was in Mahoning County Court in Boardman facing ten counts of felonious assault in connection to a Sept. 7 confrontation with police where shots were fired.
Boardman police say Wilson shot at officers and troopers on Market Street in Boardman.
According to a police report, officers asked Wilson to use the sidewalk after spotting him walking in the middle of Market Street at Gertrude Avenue around 12:15 a.m. Police said Wilson walked away and later fired a shot, which hit a police cruiser.
The report states that officers ordered Wilson to drop the gun and get on the ground, but Wilson fired a second shot at officers.
Law enforcement shot back and Wilson was hurt. He was treated at the hospital and booked into the Mahoning County Jail Tuesday.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Sept. 24.
