A woman and two men were shot while leaving the scene of a fight inside the apartment complex. A fourth victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

CLYDE, Ohio — Two men were charged with murder Friday after one person was found shot to death at an apartment complex in Clyde on Thursday night.

On Friday, Clyde police said Deondre Rashad Strange, 27, and Jermaine Howard, 24, face charges relating to the murder of Joshlyn Bridges, 31.

Police were called to the Laurel Terrance apartment complex around 8 p.m. after receiving reports of a group of people fighting, with the fight ending in gunshots.

Clyde police said that when they arrived, they found a 2007 Ford Explorer SUV that had overturned as it fled the scene. Inside the vehicle were driver Strange and passenger Howard. Strange was taken to an area hospital. 

Officers found Bridges inside the apartment complex at East Commerce Drive with serious injuries and he was pronounced dead at the scene. 

Howard is being held at the Sandusky County jail awaiting an initial court appearance at Clyde County Court No. 1. Strange will remain under law enforcement supervision until he receives medical clearance. At that point, he will be taken to the Sandusky County jail to await his court appearance. 

Police said they found multiple people at the scene with gunshot wounds. A woman and two men were wounded and taken to the hospital. Their names and conditions have not been released.

Police said this seems to be an isolated incident and no suspects are at large.

The Clyde Police Department continues to investigate the incident along with the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation and they are working with the Sandusky County Prosecutor's Office. After the investigation, the case will be presented to a Sandusky County Grand Jury.
