At 3:35 this morning, Omar Braswell Sutton, 19, arrived at Mercy St. Vincent with a gunshot wound to the chest. He died at the hospital a short time later, police said. He had been found near Collingwood Avenue and Bancroft Street. There are no suspects at this time.
Earlier this morning, police responded to a quadruple shooting at Remy’s Gentlamans Club, 707 Matzinger Road. Police said that between 20 and 25 shots were fired from multiple handguns during the incident. Shot were Keshawn Jennings, James Moore, Sean Johnson, and Terrill Bennett. None of the victims suffered life threatening injuries, and there have been no arrests yet.
Police said the night club shooting was possibly gang-related. The shooting apparently started after someone was denied entry to the club, according to police.
Tuesday night, police and rescue crews responded about 9:50 p.m. to 1232 Colburn St. near Hiett Avenue, although rescue crews could not locate a victim and did not transport anyone. Police said Dustin Matney, 24, was shot at least once in the hip and was taken by an individual to the University of Toledo Medical Center, the former Medical College of Ohio.
The gunman fled, although police said they have a lead on the suspect, although they have not released the person’s name. This morning, the house where that shooting occurred caught on fire, causing heavy damage to the structure. When the fire department arrived, the first and second floors were on fire, Lt. Matthew Hertzfeld said. The fire is considered arson and is under investigation.
Crews razed the building earlier today.
