Someone fired gunshots into the car of a woman whose parents were found slain inside their New Franklin home in 2013.
Chelsea Schobert, 19, and an unidentified 15-year-old boy who was riding in her car were not injured, a report shows.
Schobert filed the police report Tuesday. The shooting took place May 16 at East and Garth avenues. No suspect has been named.
It is unclear why the report was filed more than two weeks after the shooting. Schobert declined comment Thursday when reached by phone.
Schobert told police she was driving her 2011 Chrysler 300 south on East Avenue at about 4:30 p.m. when she heard a “couple of pops” and realized her car was struck with gunfire. Schobert then lost control of the car and hit a curb.
Police say there were two bullet holes on the sedan.
Schobert’s adoptive parents, Jeffrey and Margaret Schobert, were beaten to death April 2, 2013, at their Portage Lakes home in New Franklin.
The accused killer, Shawn Eric Ford Jr., 19, was Chelsea Schobert’s boyfriend. Ford and Jamall Vaughn, 15, are awaiting trial.
Authorities have said that Jeff and Margaret Schobert wanted to bring an end to their daughter’s relationship with Ford and that it might have been a factor in their deaths.
This month’s car shooting took place about four days before Schobert pleaded guilty in Summit County Common Pleas Court to a felony charge of trafficking cocaine. She is scheduled to be sentenced June 17.
The charges stem from an incident at her Coventry Township apartment in February in which a shot was fired inside the unit. Deputies later arrested Schobert and her friend, Chauncy Williams, 32, of Akron, on drug trafficking charges.
Williams was sentenced this week to 4½ years in prison. He pleaded guilty to trafficking cocaine and being a felon in possession of a firearm. He was on parole when he was arrested on the new charges.
