There have been four shootings in Toledo within two days, and two of them were fatal. Although police are following leads, no one has been arrested yet.
Toledo Police say one person is dead after a shooting at Dorr Street and Woodstock Avenue, between Upton and Parkside in west Toledo. This makes the city's 22nd homicide.
Police were called out to the scene at 10:09 p.m. Wednesday. The victim, 22-year-old Shaun Flowers, was pronounced dead at the scene. Police say he suffered from multiple gunshot wounds.
Flowers got his hair cut at Leonard Stewart's barber shop earlier that day.
"We can't forgive each other? We can't say, 'I'm sorry,' and go on with our lives? We have to come to the point where it's gunned down in the street, like the Wild Wild West? It's crazy," said Stewart.
Stewart says the trend of violence in his community is heart breaking.
"I don't understand it. I really don't understand it, but I can say this: The Klu Klux Klan done retired, because all we doing now, is killing each other," said Stewart.
There have been four shootings in Toledo within two days, and two of them were fatal. The first shooting was fatal on Tuesday in the 1500 block of Elm. Later that day, a shooting injured a man at Islington and Fulton in the Old West End. The very next day, police were called to Norwood and Lawrence for a drive-by. Later that night, there was this murder on Dorr and Woodstock.
Police are still following leads on all the shootings. At this point, there are no suspects behind bars. Anyone with information should call the Toledo Police Investigation Services Section at 419-245-3142 or CrimeStoppers at 419-255-1111.
