Police look for suspect in shooting of teen boy


Toledo police were looking Tuesday for a gunman who shot a 17-year-old boy during a confrontation the night before in a vacant lot in the Old South End neighborhood.

Masimino Rodriquez of Stebbins Street, who suffered a chest wound, was taken to the University of Toledo Medical Center, the former Medical College of Ohio Hospital, police said. A hospital spokesman said he had no information about a person by that name.

The shooting occurred about 8:15 p.m. in a residential area at Western Avenue and Boody Street, police said. Officers did not give a reason for the confrontation. Authorities said the suspected gunman was about 6 feet tall and was wearing a gray hooded jacket and a sweatsuit.
