LOGAN – A 45-year-old Nelsonville area man who was arrested after an incident in which a 19-year-old Logan man was shot in the neck has been indicted on multiple felony charges.
An indictment filed Aug. 30 in Hocking County Common Pleas Court charges Shawn Floyd with discharging a firearm on or near prohibited premises, a first-degree felony, as well as two counts of felonious assault with a three-year gun specification, a second-degree felony.
As previously reported in The Logan Daily News, Floyd was arrested in connection with an Aug. 14 incident that took place outside a Sanner Road residence in Nelsonville. Details of the incident, as related by multiple witnesses to Hocking County Sheriff’s investigators, are confused and contradictory. But apparently 19-year-old Karsten Campbell had driven to the residence with two other people, intending to confront a juvenile male who had been texting Campbell hostile messages, having to do with an allegation that Campbell and another man had stolen money from the juvenile’s 17-year-old brother.
A confrontation took place when Campbell came to the Sanner Road home, and at some point Floyd, by his own account, came out of the residence and fired a .22-caliber weapon at Campbell’s car.
Officers reported finding multiple bullet holes in the vehicle, and an officer who visited Campbell in a Columbus hospital observed a small-caliber bullet entry wound beneath the base of his neck on the right side, about an inch from his spine.
Hocking County Common Pleas Court online records indicate Floyd has a pre-trial scheduled for Sept. 30, and a jury trial Oct. 27.
