Toledoan sought in shooting of man

A Toledo man was charged yesterday with shooting another man in the head Monday during what police said was a gang-related incident in the 1400 block of Lincoln Avenue.

Antoine Tuggle, 22, of 4337 Debra Ct. was charged with felonious assault in an arrest warrant in Toledo Municipal Court. He was not in custody yesterday.

There is Crime Stopper reward money available for information leading to his arrest, Sgt. Richard Murphy said.

The suspect is accused of shooting Jerome Saxton, 22, who police said was in critical condition at Toledo Hospital.

A hospital spokesman said she had no information on a patient by his name.

Police said events that led to the shooting began at a near-downtown bar and continued on Lincoln, where several cars drove past a house.

Several people were on the porch there.

The victim was in the driver s seat of a car when some of the people on the porch came down toward the street, and the victim was shot.

The car then went around the corner and crashed into a pole at Oakwood and Smead avenues, where police found the victim.
