SUSPECT ARRESTED AFTER SHOOTING

On 16 Apr 07 Detectives responded to a residence in Dunham Township, from where Joshua Martini, age 20, 2394 Woodruff Road, Vincent had been transported after suffering a gunshot wound in a vehicle somewhere in Wesley Township. Martini was driving a motor vehicle and was shot in the right side with a 357 Magnum revolver. The shot was fired through the back seat of the vehicle Martini was operating. Through investigative measures, Detective Hiatt learned that Hank Wells, age 19, 9299 State Route 555, Cutler, had been in possession of a loaded firearm while traveling in a vehicle in Wesley Township. When questioned, Mr. Wells admitted to being in possession of this firearm but denied shooting the victim. Mr. Wells further admitted that he was a passenger in the vehicle in which the victim had been shot. Contradicting Mr. Wells’ claim of not shooting him, the victim stated Mr. Wells was in possession of the weapon prior to him being shot and was also in possession of it immediately afterward. Mr. Wells was subsequently arrested for a probation violation and improperly transporting a firearm in a vehicle and transported to the Washington County Jail. The weapon was recovered by the Sheriff’s Office tracking dog “Dutch” located in a brush pile where it had apparently been hidden. The brush pile was located near a residence at 1770 Sealey Ridge Road, Vincent. Martini was transported to St. Joseph Hospital and remains hospitalized for the gunshot wound. Additional charges are expected to be filed.
