Ohio Couple Charged for Stolen Gun After Accidental Shooting - Minor Charge for the Shooting

Local news

Two people have been charged in the accidental shooting of a 13 year old Liberty Township boy.
Keyoina Owens, 33, and Joseph Greer, 32, have been charged in the matter with receiving stolen property and child endangering.

Liberty Police Chief Rich Tisone says the two suspects are the lease holders of the East Montrose home where the teen was shot on June 6.

The teen suffered a gun shot wound to the foot while home alone with three other boys, all between the ages of 11 and 14.

One of boys called 9-1-1 saying the victim's foot was bleeding badly. Meanwhile, another boy can be overheard on the call accusing the group of playing with the gun.

After arriving on the scene, Liberty police found a fully-loaded 40 caliber Glock which authorities believe may have been stolen in Michigan.

No charges were filed against the boys; however, charges were filed for Owens and Greer, lease-owners of the Liberty house and possessors of the stolen gun in question.

The charge of receiving stolen property is a felony, and the charge of child endangering is a misdemeanor.
