MONROE TOWNSHIP — Police are looking for two men who opened fire on a group of people at an apartment complex early this morning, leaving one man hospitalized with gunshot wounds to the leg.
Monroe County sheriff ’s Detective Dave Davison said he and other investigators are looking for two local white men in their 20s with thin builds who were wearing bandanas at the time of the shooting.
“We have two persons of interest,” Detective Davison said. “They are suspects.”
The incident happened about 12:30 a.m. at the Charring Square Apartments off S. Dixie Hwy. south of Dunbar Rd. The shooting apparently was in retaliation for a fight that occurred on Monday, police said.
According to Detective Davison, a group of people were standing outside an apartment when two men approached. One of the suspects asked the victim if he was a certain person, but before he could answer, the gunman pulled out a pistol and opened fire.
The victim was not the person the suspect was looking for, police said. However, the targeted person was at the scene. After the shooting, the two suspects fled through the complex and disappeared in the Oakridge Estates Mobile Home Park.
The victim, a 22-year-old local man, was taken to Mercy Memorial Hospital then transferred to St. Vincent Mercy Hospital, Toledo, where he remained today with non-life-threatening gunshot wounds to the lower leg, detectives said.
Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call Detective Davison at 240-7533 or Detective Jeff Pauli at 240-7745.
Why are "groups of people" standing around after midnight?
Aren't there curfews?
Why do complexes this large not have security to deter the late partiers?
Looks like they would care about their tenants safety.
Decent people will look elsewhere to live.
