A teenage boy was released from a local hospital yesterday while another victim remained in serious condition after a double shooting Wednesday in South Toledo.
Jovan Jones, 15, of Walbridge Avenue was released from St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center, where Ryan Siler of Knower Street was in serious condition, authorities said.
Police said Mr. Siler and young Jones were shot after a confrontation that occurred after a father intervened to break up a fight between his daughter and another girl near Broadway and Knower. Words were exchanged between the father and some boys who observed the fight, police said.
The father then took his daughter home to the 200 block of Knower. A short time later, Mr. Siler walked out of a house on Knower and confronted the same boys. Investigators said a youth pulled out a gun and shot Mr. Siler. They said a neighbor fired a shot that struck young Jones. No charges have been filed. The incident remains under investigation.
