Man held in shooting of S. Toledo resident


Accused of shooting a South Toledo man, Christopher Webb was being held in the Lucas County jail Wednesday in lieu of $100,000 bond.

Mr. Webb, 20, of 537 Elmdale Ave. is charged with felonious assault, trafficking in drugs, and drug paraphernalia.

Police allege in court documents that Mr. Webb shot at Charles Howe III, 19, about 12:15 a.m. Tuesday in the 100 block of Eldred Avenue.

Mr. Howe was hit at least once in the abdomen and taken to the University of Toledo Medical Center, the former Medical College of Ohio. A spokesman said she had no information on a patient by that name.

A Toledo police report said the victim was outside in front of his home when a vehicle, "driving erratically," stopped in front of the victim. A witness told police one man got out of the vehicle with a baseball bat, and the victim pulled out a gun.

Another witness said the two argued, but police said they don't know what the conversation was about.

The suspect got back into the vehicle and, as the car drove off, at least one person fired four times.

Police reported finding drugs and paraphernalia at Mr. Webb's home at the time of his arrest.
