SPRINGDALE, Ohio — A Hamilton County grand jury has indicted a second person in a shooting that wounded one man in a Dave & Buster's parking lot on June 28.

On July 1, police announced they'd arrested 24-year-old John Perez and were charging him in connection with the shooting.

On Tuesday, Springdale police said Cierra Godfrey had been indicted on the same charges Perez faces: two counts of felonious assault, one count of improper handling of a firearm in a motor vehicle and of receiving stolen property.

Court documents indicated that Perez had been involved in a fight at the barcade with multiple other suspects on June 28. During the altercation, police said, he retrieved a gun from his vehicle and shot another man in the back.

Police did not indicate immediately how Godfrey was involved in the incident; court documents say she also brandished and fired a gun with the intent to wound the victim.

Perez was arrested by police and remained at the Hamilton County Justice Center Tuesday, but Godfrey had not yet been arrested, Springdale police said.
