HURON TOWNSHIP, Ohio — A suspect was arrested, and deputies are searching for a second man involved in a shooting outside the Kalahari Resort late Tuesday, according to the Sandusky Register news web site.

As many as 10 rounds scattered across the parking lot shortly after 11 p.m. Tuesday at the front of the mega-resort on U.S. 250.

Deputies were still checking for damaged cars from the gunfire, which came from 9 mm and .40 caliber handguns, the newspaper reported.

Nobody was injured.

Evan Jayshon McKinney, 18, of Toledo was arrested inside the Kalahari at 6:30 this morning. He was located by Kalahari security. Erie County Sheriff Paul Sigsworth said county Prosecutor Kevin Baxter is reviewing potential charges, which could include attempted murder, felonious assault and weapons violations.

“The initial report was there was a physical altercation between him and the individuals he was with and the other suspect and his group. It went outside and escalated to the use of firearms,” Sigsworth said.

Deputies have information about the second suspect and are pursuing leads as to his whereabouts, the sheriff said.
