Three men were robbed and one shot in the leg by an assailant, in North Toledo just after midnight Wednesday morning, Toledo police said.
Shooting victim Steve Jones, Jr., 24, was listed in serious condition later Wednesday in Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center.
The three victims told investigators two men pulled handguns on them at 150 E. Park St. about 12:02 a.m. and ordered them to the ground. The robbers went through their pockets and took cell phones and a benefits card.
One of the gunmen told Mr. Jones to “stop moving around” and shot him in the back of the right leg, the police report said.
The gunmen were described as about 19 years old, about 5 feet and 7 inches tall, of thin build, and wearing black hooded jackets. They were last seen running toward Warsaw Street.
