Police seek North Toledo shooting suspect


Terrell Murray


Toledo police are looking for the 24-year-old man they say shot another man Thursday afternoon in an attempted robbery over a can of beer.

Police issued an arrest warrant for Terrell Murray Friday morning for shooting Jerry McElya, 42, in the leg.

Mr. McElya was shot just before 12:45 p.m. Thursday at Lagrange Street and Huron Avenue in North Toledo. He tried to run but fell at Lagrange and Superior Street.

He was taken to Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center with nonlife threatening injuries.

The victim told police he had just left a convenience store and was walking home when the suspect asked for 50 cents. The victim said he had only a beer and eight quarters he planned to use for doing laundry.

Anyone with information on the suspect is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 419-255-1111.
