The Findlay Police Department has identified Trey D. James as the victim of a fatal George Street shooting Friday afternoon.

James, 24, of Findlay, was found with multiple gunshot wounds following a fight at 241 George St. on Friday, according to police.

He was transported to Blanchard Valley Hospital by Hanco Ambulance and was later pronounced dead, police said.

An autopsy will be performed in the coming days by the Lucas County Coroner’s Office, according to police.

Police continue to investigate. No arrests had been made as of Sunday.

In October 2012, James was jailed after he allegedly fired a handgun toward a motorist traveling on George Street, the Findlay Police Department reported. No injury was reported.

James, then 20, was arrested on a felony charge of receiving stolen property — a handgun — and aggravated menacing, according to a police report.

Officers responded to a report of a gunshot being fired in the 300 block of George Street, after James allegedly pointed a gun and fired a round toward a driver.

The .40-caliber semi-automatic handgun had been reported stolen during a burglary in McComb, city police said.

Police found James in a backyard of a home in the 100 block of George Street and the handgun was found nearby.

According to police, the motorist had reportedly testified against a family member of James during a criminal trial.

The stolen property charge was later reduced to a first-degree misdemeanor and James pleaded guilty in Hancock County Common Pleas Court. He was sentenced to 90 days in the Hancock County jail for the incident.
