Toledo police are asking for help in solving an apparent attempted robbery late last year in which a man was shot and killed and another was shot and wounded in East Toledo.
The shootings occurred about 2:50 a.m. Dec. 17 in the 500 block of Platt Street, in houses facing each other, Toledo police said.
Police responding to a report of a person shot arrived about 3 a.m. and found that Dana Frison, 38, of 512 Platt had been killed and James Lawrence, 19, had suffered a leg wound in the house at 511 Platt.
An attempted robbery is believed to be the motive in the fatal shooting, according to police.
