Garage shooting victim is city s second of month

A 41-year-old South Miller Street man died after police found him on the floor of a garage in the 2400 block of Auburn Avenue late Saturday.

Toledo police responded to a shooting call at 2412 Auburn about 10:10 p.m. and found Othell Bruce Floyd of 318 South Miller unconscious on the floor of the garage with a gunshot wound to his chest.

Mr. Floyd was taken to Toledo Hospital where he was pronounced dead about 10:55 p.m.

Sgt. Greg Smith said police believe Mr. Floyd was working on a car in the garage when the shooting occurred but have no additional information. Detectives continue to investigate the case.

Toledo did not have a homicide in January for the first time in 35 years, but has had two in the first five days of February.

On Wednesday, Rodney Coley, a city employee, was shot as he opened the front door of his home at 2736 Bryn Mawr Drive. Two men and a juvenile are being held in that shooting.
