Man carries loaded handgun into Islamic Center school

12 January 2011 General One Comment Email This Post Email This Post

PERRYSBURG TOWNSHIP, OHIO — A Michigan man has been charged with bringing a firearm inside a school safety zone at the Islamic Center of Greater Toledo.

Authorities say Ylli Gocaj, 26, of Livonia, was driving southbound on I-75 in Perrysburg Township Tuesday when his vehicle ran out of gas.  He then entered the center where nearly three dozens students were attending classes.   Gocaj was carrying a loaded handgun; however, no shots were fired and no threats were made.

School officials sensed something was wrong and contacted authorities as they ushered students into classrooms and locked doors behind them. The suspect was walked outside the building where he was later met by Perrysburg Township Police.

Gocaj has been charged with illegal conveyance of a firearm into a school safety zone, a fifth-degree felony.  He is being held in the Wood County Jail on $50,000 bond.

Police say Gocaj has no prior record.
