Around 11:30 a.m. Thursday, our camera was rolling while we talked to central Toledo resident Jerry Sexton about the demolition of abandoned homes on Park Street being done this week by the city of Toledo. Two minutes into the interview six gunshots were fired in rapid succession a half block away.
"And we have fireworks going off or shots being fired," Mr. Sexton said.
The bullets struck a house on the corner of East Park and Elm. One bullet shattered the glass of the front door. The owner of the home came outside to see what was going on and when he saw that his house had been sprayed by bullets he called police.
Several patrol cars and an unmarked vehicle arrived at the scene a few minutes after the shooting. No one was hurt.
