The suspects in a Tuesday shooting in Steubenville made their first court appearance on Wednesday.

Carey Bailey, David Hanlin, and Marlin Hartman have been charged with felonious assault causing serious physical harm. All three face eight years in prison and a $15,000 fine.

Bond was set at $300,000 for each suspect. Their next court appearance is April 26.




Steubenville Police have arrested Carey Bailey, David Hanlin, and Marlin Hartman after a shooting left one man critically injured overnight Tuesday.

"Officers responded to shots fired call around Lincoln Avenue and Tweed Avenue. When they got there, a subject had been shot. He had been transported to the hospital. Right now we do not know who took him to the hospital," says Chief Bill McCafferty.

The victim, 33-year-old Zachary Willis of County Road 28, was flown to a Pittsburgh hospital where he remains in critical condition.

Chief McCafferty says the whole incident happened because of an argument.

"Apparently some kind of altercation started at a bar in Mingo Junction and the two groups involved. One followed the other to Steubenville and that's where the shooting occurred," says Chief McCafferty.

A neighbor told WTRF he woke up around 1 a.m. to commotion outside and saw six to eight police officers and state troopers, a chilling site to see right outside of his house.

Police found seven shell casings and blood where the shooting occurred.

Hartman and Hanlin are charged with felonious assault. Bailey's charges are still pending. All three will be in court Wednesday morning.
