E. Toledoan fatally shot at housing complex

An East Toledo man was gunned down early yesterday in the Weiler Homes, his body riddled with so many bullet wounds that police admitted they were unsure how many times the victim was been shot.

The body of Elijah Johnson, 30, of 761 Siegel Ct., was found shortly before 5 a.m. between two cars outside 611 Easterly Ct. in the Lucas Metropolitan Housing Authority complex on the east side.

Callers reported hearing the shooting, Sgt. Tim Noble said.

Mr. Johnson was pronounced dead at the scene. An autopsy was ordered, police said.

Police pursued leads for hours yesterday, but said they made no arrests.

They also said they were not sure of the motive, and said they knew little about the victim.

It was not immediately clear if the weapon was a small-caliber rifle or a handgun, Sergeant Noble said.
