TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) - A man facing charges in a Toledo shooting that led to a standoff with police pleaded guilty in court on Wednesday.

According to court records, Jamar Kenney withdrew his previous not guilty plea and pleaded guilty to Felonious Assault in court on Nov. 1. Judge Dean Mandros then sentenced Kenney to 10 to 13 and a half years in prison.

Police say Kenney allegedly shot a family member who he lives with in the 500 block of Dexter on July 11, 2023. The victim was taken to an area hospital and underwent surgery for his injuries.

The incident led to a standoff with police on Dexter in which officers shot tear gas into the home but no suspect was found inside. The alleged shooter was arrested later.

Police told Action News crews at the time they were looking for a third unnamed person who lived with Kenney and the victim.
