Four men shot at Oberlin apartment, gunman arrested
Sean Woodings in court
OBERLIN, OH (WOIO) -
A shooting on West College Street conjures up visions of violence near the Oberlin College campus, but the location where four men were shot is far from campus geographically, and a world away socially.
Police say four men in an upstairs apartment spotted the gunman across the street. One was angry because he had talked badly about his grandmother. They went out to confront him and he began firing.
It happened in an open area just across the street from the apartment complex.
But as suspected gunman Sean Woodings came to court, he told a different story, one of him being provoked.
He faces four counts of felonious assault, likely because he was provoked and earlier had sought a protection order against his victims.
