Shooting In Toledo Ohio
A Shooting in Toledo, Ohio, Is Just the Latest in a String of Shootings in the City
Earlier this week, police in Toledo, Ohio, shot and killed an armed suspect. The incident was just the latest in a string of shootings in the city. Authorities have not disclosed what the motive may be, but two people were found dead inside their home. And two other individuals were wounded.
Police arrived at the scene after a caller reported someone had been shot. When they arrived, they found a man and a woman dead at the scene. A third person was found injured, but not seriously. As soon as police arrived, they called in a SWAT unit, which rushed to the scene. After 15 minutes, the apartment units were cleared out. However, the suspect was still in the upstairs apartment unit.
The incident has also prompted Toledo’s chief of police to acknowledge that the timing of this shooting was unusual. It happened just five minutes after the third quarter ended. While it is not clear how many shots were fired into the crowd, multiple audio recordings and photographs have confirmed at least 20 shots were fired into the crowd.
The’most interesting’ thing about the incident was that the victim who was killed was a “habitual runaway,” according to Toledo police. His name was DeAsia Green, a freshman at Start High School. Another person who was hurt was a 14-year-old girl. In addition, a third person was taken to a local hospital, but no one has been identified.
Several of the victims’ parents have spoken to local media about their children’s experience. They said they were shocked to see people running from the scene. Some have spoken about the fact that the Toledo Central Catholic High School football game was halted for about five minutes after the first shot was fired. Other students have said they were worried about their own safety after hearing five shots ring out.
The Toledo Blade reported that the incident is “a good example of a drive-by shooting.” Although no one has been identified as the person who was actually shooting, several audio recordings and photographs have revealed at least 20 shots were fired into the crowd. Two of the shooters wore ski masks.
According to one of the police officers who was at the scene, the gun that was used in the incident was a replica. Though it was not the same gun that was used in the robbery, it was the first gun that was shot in the city since May.
Two other people have been injured, including a 15-year-old girl and a 16-year-old boy. The names of the two victims have not been released, but all police officers have been placed on administrative leave.
While the Toledo police did not release the name of the person who was shot, he was shot in the 300 block of West Park Street. He had been suspected of burglarizing a home on the street. Despite the alleged crime, the boy had a strong case of neglect and was being treated in a Toledo hospital.
