Man shot in leg after night of drinking in Lima

ALLEN COUNTY — The Allen County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a shooting from Sunday morning at 2221 Diller Road.

A deputy said an unidentified man was shot in the leg and sought treatment at Mercy Health-St. Rita’s Medical Center for non-life threatening wounds.

The victim originally told Lima police that the incident happened on West Elm Street, but later said it took place at the Diller Road home of 46-year-old Michael Sheets.

Investigators believe the shooting took place after a night of drinking, sometime between 7 and 8 a.m. Sunday. Lima police handed over the investigation to the Allen County Sheriff’s Office just after 8 a.m. Sunday when it was determined the crime scene was out of the city limits.

Charges against Sheets are pending.

He was taken into custody.
