Suspect sought after two men shot outside bar


LORAIN — Police are searching for the suspect in a shooting outside of a bar in Lorain that sent two people to the hospital Sunday.

About 2 a.m. Sunday, police responded to 2831 Apple Ave. in Lorain just outside of Club Our Space where a few men had gotten into an argument and shots were fired.

At the scene police found Oshae Noble, 20, and Laquan Wallace, 22, both shot. The two were flown to MetroHealth Medical Center.

On Monday night, Noble was listed in fair condition and Wallace in critical condition, according to a nursing supervisor.

Witnesses at the scene identified Arzell Nash, 28, as the shooter, though Nash had left before police arrived.

The incident began when Noble and Wallace got into a fight with Nash outside the bar, said Lorain police Lt. Roger Watkins. Nash fired a gun at one or both of the men before running eastbound, Watkins said.

Nash's last known address is in the 1700 block of East 31st Street, according to Deputy Tony Keffer, Lorain County task coordinator for the U.S. Marshals Service.

The task force and Lorain Police are looking for Nash. Anyone with information on his location should contact (866) 4WANTED, (440) 204-2105 or text keyword “WANTED” and the tip to TIP411. Tipsters may remain anonymous and cash rewards are available.
