LISBON – An 18-year-old Midland, Pa., man pleaded guilty Monday in Columbiana County Common Pleas Court to gun-related charges from shooting at a home in Wellsville this summer.
Queysean Sallis pleaded guilty to two counts of a three-count indictment. Sentencing is set for Dec. 13.
Sallis is accused of improperly discharging a firearm and discharging a firearm near a prohibited premises after he shot a handgun from 16th Street in Wellsville in the direction of the Jackson residence on July 29.
According to court documents, one bullet went through a double-pane dining room window and the dining room blinds before deflecting off the south dining room wall.
Assistant County Prosecutor Ryan Weikart said he will ask for a five-year sentence, but agreed he will drop the first count, a burglary charge. That charge alleged on the same date Sallis and another man forced their way into the Cunningham residence in Wellsville and hid there in a second-story bedroom while the residents of the house, including an infant, were home.
