The Findlay Police Department is investigating an incident involving an assault and robbery that resulted in a shooting Monday afternoon involving an adult and two juveniles.

The incident happened in the parking lot of the Circle K at 100 Crystal Avenue at around 5 p.m. Monday.

Police say 20-year-old Marcus Cataline and a 17-year-old male arrived at the Circle K parking lot in a Chevy Cruze.

Another 17-year-old male was in a separate vehicle in the parking lot. The parties knew each other.

Police say Cataline and the 17-year-old he was with donned ski masks and approached the other 17-year-old while he was sitting in his vehicle.

Police say Cataline and the juvenile he was with entered the other 17-year-old’s vehicle, assaulted him and took his wallet.

Cataline and the 17-year-old he was with then got back into their Cruze and started leaving the scene.

Police say the 17-year-old that was assaulted produced a handgun and fired three shots at the Cruze, striking it each time. No one in the Cruze was struck by the gunfire.

The juvenile that was assaulted and then fired off the shots then fled the area and his whereabouts were unknown as of the time police sent out a news release around 8 p.m. Monday.

Police located the Cruze and placed Cataline and the 17-year-old he was with under arrest for robbery.

The juvenile that was assaulted and then fired off the shots is wanted for questioning. Additional charges may be pursued at a later date.

Police said both juveniles have been identified but their identities were not being immediately released.

The incident remains under investigation.

This is the second shooting in Findlay in three days, with two people getting shot Saturday night on East Front Street.
