Toledo man, 23, shot in arm after robbery


A 23-year-old Toledo man was shot in the city’s south side late Monday night, police said.

Marvin Smith told police he was looking through his car in the 1300 block of Brookview Drive about 10 p.m. when an unknown person approached him and asked for a lighter.

When Mr. Smith told the man he didn’t have one, the person pulled out a gun and pointed it at Mr. Smith and took $265 from Mr. Smith’s pocket, according to a Toledo police report.

The man then shot Mr. Smith once in the left arm and fled on foot.
