No Bail For I-71 Shooter


Jonathon Sirvelle Wilder Myers isn't leaving jail - at least for now.


Delaware County Magistrate Alexis Hartman ordered the 21-year-old Columbus man to be held without bond at the Delaware County Jail pending a bond hearing Monday with Delaware County Court of Common Pleas Judge David Gormley. Myers' preliminary hearing is scheduled for March 25.


Myers was arraigned today on attempted aggravated murder stemming from last Friday's bizarre incident on I-71 in Delaware County. Wearing orange jail overalls, Myers showed no emotion during his brisk video arraignment.

Police say Jonathon Sirvelle Wilder Myers drove his 2014 Ford Fusion off the left side of I-71 north of East Powell Road last Friday morning, hit a cable barrier in the median, exited his car, pulled out a handgun, and took potshots at vehicles. Myers' bullets thankfully didn't hit anyone but damaged three vehicles.

Columbus Division of Police cruiser struck by bullet in shootout with Myers. The bullet holes in the windshield are from the officer returning fire.

When Columbus Division of Police arrived on the scene, Myers opened fire on the officers. One of the errant bullets hit a cruiser. Officers returned fire, and sources say a bullet hit Myers in the lower torso. Myers was treated at Grant Medical Center.


Myers' female passenger has not been identified.


Myers has four open cases in the Franklin County Court of Common Pleas, including a 28-count indictment for trafficking in drugs, possession of drugs, firearms, and having weapons while under disability.
