Ashtabula man gets seven years in connection with shooting on West 36th St.

JEFFERSON — A 20-year-old Ashtabula man accused of shooting a man three times in the leg Nov. 16 on West 36th Street will spend the next four years in prison.

Terrell Jones, 3013 Larson Lane, has pleaded guilty to attempted murder with a firearm specification, a first-degree felony, Ashtabula County Common Pleas records show.

He also was charged with felonious assault, a second-degree felony, but that was dismissed in exchange for a guilty plea to murder, court records show.

He was sentenced to seven years with 117 days jail time credited and he must complete a five-year period of post-release control, records show.

Jones, who was on the run after the Nov. 16 shooting, was the subject of an intensive manhunt in Ohio and New York, police said.

He was arrested in January on West 30th Street in Ashtabula, thanks to a cooperative effort by the Ashtabula Police Department, the U.S. Marshals Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force and the FBI.

“We got tidbits of information that he was back in Ashtabula,” Ashtabula Police Lt. Joseph Cellitti said at the time. “Surprisingly, when we found him, he didn’t fight.”

Capturing Jones was a top priority for city police, so they asked the U.S. Marshals to help them.

During their investigation, detectives found shell casings on West 36th Street between Lake and Station avenues, according to police reports.

The victim has recovered from the bullet wounds, police said.

The U.S. Marshal’s Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force is comprised of officers from Ashtabula, Geauga and Lake counties. Local agencies that contribute personnel to the force include Ashtabula Police Depart-ment, Ashtabula County Sheriff’s Office, Conneaut Police Department, North Kingsville Police Depart-ment and Adult Parole and Probation.
