Shotgun blast kills Old West End man

A 25-year-old man was shot in the head and killed last night next door to his Old West End home, authorities said.

Robert Badgett of 554 West Central Ave. was pronounced dead at 8:27 p.m. at St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center, Walt Biegala, a Lucas County coroner's investigator, said.

A suspect was being sought last night, Toledo police Capt. Ron Spann said.

Mr. Badgett was shot once with a shotgun in front of 3103 Parkwood Ave. The reason for the shooting was unclear, the captain said.

Battalion Fire Chief Frank Keating said the victim was outside his neighbor's house and by the front steps.
