Man suffers gunshot after resisting robbery

A man was shot in the leg after two people approached him about money in the 2000 block of Lagrange Street yesterday morning, Toledo police said.

Casar Velazco, of 2002 Lagrange, told police he was sitting on the front step of his apartment building with two other people about 2:30 a.m. when two people walked up to them demanding money.

He said one person produced a handgun when they told them they didn't have any cash. Mr. Velazco and the two other people fled into their apartments when the gunman fired one round through Mr. Velazco's door, hitting him in the left thigh. Mr. Velazco was treated by Toledo Fire Department and taken to a hospital.

The case remained under investigation late yesterday.
