Macomber St. man shot; neighbor robbed by pair

Two men wearing masks and carrying handguns yesterday shot a man in the leg and robbed the victim's neighbor, police said.

Jaamal Spriggs, 23, of Macomber Street, was in good condition in Toledo Hospital. He was shot in the leg and a bullet grazed the back of his head.

He told police one of the men confronted him in his kitchen and demanded money about 1:30 a.m. When he tried to flee, the suspect fired several shots, hitting him.

A neighbor, William Anderson, 27, said he was behind his house when the other man demanded his wallet and $30. Mr. Anderson said he heard shots coming from Mr. Spriggs' house and saw the other suspect fleeing, police said.
