One man was taken to Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center after being shot in the arm today.

Toledo police did not release the victim's name, but the man was walking around on the porch of a house in the 1700 block of Oakwood Avenue where someone fired into the house.

Police said at least one round from a shotgun was fired into the house and two men driving an olive green pick up truck with a wooden tailgate fled the scene.

A neighbor, William Heisinger, 24, said he heard arguing, a single gunshot, the squeal of tires, and a second shot.
