Toledo man suffers gunshot wound


A 22-year-old man was shot in the head Wednesday night as he walked near Sherman and Locust streets in North Toledo, police said.

Tyshaun Moore, of Kent Street, was taken to Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center, where he was in surgery Wednesday night, police said.

A hospital spokesman had no information about a patient by that name.

Police said Moore was walking with two friends before 9 p.m. when he heard at least three gunshots and realized he’d been struck in the side of the head. It was unclear whether he was grazed behind his left ear or a bullet entered his head, but injuries seemed non-life threatening, police said.

Police are continuing to investigate.
