Gerald Rose, a Toledo-born anti-violence agitator, shows up in his hometown after a spate of shootings and calls for the guns to be put down.
That's exactly how I met Rose during my first summer in Toledo (2011) when there was a shooting, it seemed, every single day.
Rose, who now lives in Georgia, has a problem on the home front. Again.
His son, Gerald Rose, Jr., 22, of 2509 Briar, was arrested Tuesday morning for shooting up the home of his child's mother.
Police allege that Rose, Jr., shot into a home in the 700 block of Acton, in South Toledo, where his girlfriend and 2-year-old child lives, according to documents filed in Toledo Municipal Court. The shooting was reported on Aug. 5, 2012; charges were filed March 25.
No injuries were reported from the shooting.
Rose, Jr., was arraigned today and ordered to be held in the Lucas County jail in lieu of $100,000. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for April 12.
Police said numerous shell casings -- from at least two different guns -- were found at the house.
This is not the first time Rose, Jr., has been in trouble. Last year he was accused of pistol whipping a woman, robbery, and trafficking in drugs.
He was sentenced to six months at the Corrections Center of Northwest Ohio, and released in mid-March.
