Man shot in East Toledo

An East Toledo man was shot in the thigh early Wednesday while a passenger in a car in the 500 block of Earl Street.

Keith Goucher, 36, of 2042 Genesee St., was taken by the driver of the car to Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center. A hospital spokesman had no information about a patient by that name.

Mr. Goucher told police that the car was stopping about 1:40 a.m. so he could visit a friend. He saw the friend walking with a man who wore a black hooded sweatshirt and opened the passenger door. But something didn’t feel right, he told police, and as the car he was in pulled away, he heard a gunshot.

Police said there was a bullet hole in the trunk and the passenger-side window was shot out.

Police were notified by the hospital about 2 a.m. after Mr. Goucher arrived.
