Two good samaritans are credited with helping two homeowners and a Cleveland woman after hearing cries for help inside a home along Crescent Drive in Erie on Tuesday morning.
Erie Police Deputy Chief Don Dacus says that 25-year-old Kyle Johnson entered the home in the 300 Block of Crescent Drive Tuesday morning and had beaten the homeowner and a woman inside the home.
Johnson was wanted by Oakwood Village Police for abducting 23-year-old Brandi Shakir Monday night. Shakir was in the basement of the home at the time the beatings took place.
The good samaritans heard the struggle and entered the home to find a woman badly beaten and her husband restraining Johnson. The men called 9-1-1 and tried to hold Johnson down, but when police arrived, Johnson got away. That is when one of the men pulled out his gun and shot Johnson twice, once in the back, and once in the leg. Erie Police officers followed Johnson towards the Erie Yacht Club before apprehending him.
Shakir was taken to the hospital to be treated for her injuries. The woman who was beaten by Johnson is in critical condition at UPMC Hamot, her husband's injuries were not serious.
Dacus says that no charges will be filed against the one man for shooting Johnson.
Johnson was booked at the Erie Police Department, then transported to Erie County Prison. His bond is set at $500,000 straight cash.
