Man tells police in Lorain he was shot with pellet gun

LORAIN — A Lorain man told police he was shot multiple times by someone with a pellet gun in a passing car as he was riding a bike Nov. 28.

About 3:15 p.m., Matthew Wagner was riding from the Salvation Army at 2506 Broadway after helping to serve Thanksgiving dinner when an eastbound car drove past him on West 25th Street, according to a police report.

Wagner told police he was shot eight to 10 times in the leg before the car drove away on Broadway. He told police there were several men in the car who appeared to be 20 to 30 years old, but he was unable to provide a description of the car.

Wagner was not seriously injured in the incident.
