Candis J. Sherman, 57, has been charged with attempted aggravated murder following the shooting of her son, 15- year-old Logan, Sunday morning, July 21.

Her arraignment was scheduled for Tuesday afternoon in Fulton County Eastern District Court.

Roy Miller, Fulton County sheriff, said Logan Sherman is expected to recover from his wounds after he was shot in the “arm and back area.”

Details are limited, but Miller said in a press release deputies were dispatched to a report of a shooting about 9:33 am, Sunday, at a house at 1263 St. Rt. 109.

Once they arrived, they found Logan Sherman suffering from a gunshot wound. A revolver-type handgun was recovered.

Delta Fire and Rescue and the Delta- and Wauseonbased paramedic units were dispatched to the scene.

Logan Sherman was flown from the scene by a helicopter ambulance. Miller said the boy was taken to the St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center, Toledo. A St. V spokesman said no information was available.


When asked about the circumstances surrounding the shooting, Miller said he was “not at liberty to release the information at this point in time.”

Candis Sherman was placed under arrest and booked into the Corrections Center of Northwest Ohio Sunday on an initial charge of attempted murder.

The Fulton County Prosecutor Office filed a complaint charging her with attempted aggravated murder Monday afternoon.

She remains incarcerated at CCNO.
