A North Toledo man and a central Toledo man were seriously hurt when they exchanged gunfire and shot each other early Tuesday, authorities said.
Chris Jones, of North Toledo, and Derek Fisher, of 2554 Lawrence Ave. in central Toledo, were each in serious condition Tuesday morning at St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center, Toledo police said. A hospital spokesman said Tuesday she had no information about people by those names.
The shooting occurred about 2 a.m. near Islington Street and Parkwood Avenue, about five blocks from the Fisher address, police said.
The incident may have stemmed from a domestic argument, officers said.
Toledo police officers responding to a domestic violence call arrived about 12:30 a.m. at the Fisher address. Arrest warrants for misdemeanor assault and domestic violence were later issued against Mr. Fisher, who allegedly had injured the sister of Mr. Jones during the incident at that residence.
Dieatra Jones suffered an injury to her lip, officers said. They did not say whether she sought medical treatment.
The 2 a.m. confrontation between Mr. Fisher and Mr. Jones appears to have happened over the earlier incident, officers said.
After the gunfire exchange, Mr. Jones drove to Cherry and Baker streets, about three blocks south of St. Vincent Mercy and asked a road crew, which was working there, for help. Then police and fire crews arrived and took him to the hospital.
Minutes after Mr. Jones arrived at the hospital, Mr. Fisher arrived there on foot and complained of his injuries, police said.
In the report Tuesday, Toledo Police called Mr. Jones the victim in the shooting.
