A cross was burned in the yard of a Smith County man after what his family is referring to as a vicious hate crime occurred. Family members say that Craig Wilson was beaten with brass knuckles and shotMore >>
A burning cross, a Smith county man beaten and shot by a family member, and in critical condition. We are told this is much more than a family feud, and outraged family members are calling it a "hate crime."
If you saw a crime happen right in front of your face would you be able to describe the features of the person that did it? Toledo Police put some people to the test on Tuesday to see if they could do just that.
The department and block watch leaders staged a "chase" to see exactly how people would respond, and how accurate of a description they'd be able to give.
Block watch leaders say panic often sets in for those who witness a crime, making it tough for them to recall the suspect's description. Organizers are hoping this event teaches people to be alert and aware of those around them.
Police say height, weight, skin color, hairstyle, tattoos and jewelry are all parts of a description you can give them to help find a suspect.
Residents who attended the event say they will now be more aware and more alert.
