An off-duty Walbridge police officer shot and killed a man who attempted to rob the officer in the early morning hours Saturday in West Toledo.
Toledo police said Officer Matthew Morland and a friend were walking to the friend's home around 2:30 a.m.
Travis K. Johnson, 21, confronted the pair at gunpoint near Berkshire Place and Upton Avenue and demanded money, according to police.
Mr. Morland pulled his weapon and fired, striking Johnson six times, according to Dr. Diane Barnett, a Lucas County deputy coroner who performed an autopsy Saturday.
Johnson died at the scene, police said.
"All indications are it was justified," said Sgt. Joe Heffernan, citing Johnson's loaded handgun and mask as indications of an armed robbery.
The case may go before a grand jury to provide an additional level of scrutiny, as is standard in self-defense-type shootings, Sergeant Heffernan said.
Sergeant Heffernan said he did not have a current address for Johnson.
Dr. Barnett said he was shot in the chest as well as in the right arm, buttocks, and back.
A statement from the Walbridge Police Department said Officer Morland had been placed on paid administrative leave in accordance with village policy for officer-involved shootings.
