A man in Tiltonville was found with two gunshot wounds in his legs. After being picked up by medical professionals, the man was identified as Kenneth Hall, the missing suspected perpetrator of a recent home invasion.
A phone call to the Jefferson County 911 led to the capture of the missing suspect from Monday night’s home invasion.
“We got a call from 911 stating that the individual was here at the residence. We gained entry and located him,” said Yorkville Police Chief John Morelli.
Mr. Hall was found to be suffering from two gunshot wounds inside the Tiltonsville home. “He had two gunshot wounds to both of his knees,” Morelli said.
Hall was then transported to East Ohio Regional Hospital for treatment. He was the missing suspect in a home invasion on Pipe Creek Road in Belmont County earlier this week.
The unnamed homeowner told the responding deputies that two armed men were wearing masks and forced their way into the home. The homeowner said he was assaulted by the men but was able to get his gun and shoot at them.
Hall was believed to be shot twice in the legs during the robbery and was a fugitive until Friday.
The second suspect is also recovering in a different hospital. Investigators with the sheriff’s office say charges will be forthcoming.
