Man wanted for shooting at Middletown park
By Lauren PackStaff Writer

MIDDLETOWN 

    Police have filed charges against a man they say shot another man in the head Wednesday in a crowded Middletown park.

    Juan Douglas Wofford, 28, also known a Little Dougie, is wanted for felonious assault and having weapons under disability for the shooting of Carlos Knight at about 2 p.m. in Douglass Park.

    Lt. Scott Reeve said there had been a previous conflict between Wofford and Knight and the men met up at the park.

    “Juan immediately pulled out a gun. Carlos was not armed,” Reeve said. He said Knight was shot a close range. Wofford then fled in a red Jeep, which was found abandoned a short time later in a housing project off Main Street.

    Wofford had not been taken into custody as of this afternoon. The investigation is ongoing and others are believed to have been involved in the shooting.

    Knight, 32, was taken by medical helicopter to Miami Valley Hospital, where he remained a patient Thursday. His condition was not available.

    Wofford was a suspect in a similar 2008 shooting, police said, in which Spencer Davis was fatally shot in the parking lot of the former Grand Illusion bar on Grand Avenue. In that shooting the parking lot was full of people who witnessed the murder, but no one came forward to testify.

    “It is our hope that as a result of this second shooting that one of the original witnesses will come forward to ensure that justice is finally served for Spencer David in the 2008 shooting,” Reeve said.
