Findlay man gets 11 years for shooting city resident

A Findlay man was sentenced Wednesday to 11 years in prison for shooting a city resident during a home robbery.

Tyrel L. Jones, 22, pleaded guilty to charges of shooting Christopher A. Ingleston, 19, in the torso at about 1 a.m. Dec. 19 at 222 Prospect Ave.

Police said Jones believed another resident of the rental property had money and drugs.

Jones apologized in court for his actions. He said he intended to scare Ingleston and not shoot him.

Ingleston was treated for his gunshot wound at Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center in Toledo, according to police.

Jones pleaded guilty on Wednesday to a first-degree felony charge of aggravated robbery and a second-degree felony charge of felonious assault with a .40-caliber handgun.

Judge Reginald Routson immediately imposed an 11-year sentence, recommended by both the prosecution and defense. Routson credited Jones with 56 days served in jail.
