Man shot during South Toledo robbery attempt


A Toledo man was shot in a leg during a robbery on a South Toledo street Sunday night, police said.

The victim, 21-year-old Aerial Barnett, was taken to Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center for treatment. A hospital spokesman said the victim was still in the emergency room and a condition was not available.

The victim told police he was walking in the 1300 block of Colton Street just before midnight when he was approached by two men who demanded the victim empty his pockets.

The victim told police he ran, heard three shots, and felt a burning sensation in his right leg.

He knocked on various doors on Spencer Street until someone answered and called police.

The suspect fled the scene; no arrests have been made.
