South Toledo man shot in attempted robbery

A 36-year-old man was shot in the stomach by a gunman last night who kicked in the back door of his residence at 633 Elmdale Road during a robbery.

The injured man was taken to Medical College Hospitals. His name and condition were not available, but police said his injuries were not life threatening.

Police said the assailant forced his way into the South Toledo house about 11:15 p.m. and demanded money. The occupant of the house who was home with his wife and another woman tried to fight the attacker and was shot during the struggle.

The gunman fled out the back door and headed west on Mercer Street.

Detective Paul Tetuan said the gunman was not known to the injured man.
