An unidentified man was shot in the foot this afternoon in the Port Lawrence Homes public housing complex near downtown Toledo, police said.
Officers responded at about 1:15 p.m. to 13th Street, about a half block north of the Historic Church of St. Patrick, for a report of a shooting. A man apparently fired a gun several times at the victim following a dispute on the street. One bullet went through the victim's foot; he was taken by ambulance from the scene.
Police detained two men at the scene; they were later released when a witness told officers the men weren't involved in the shooting.
Detectives at the scene said the victim did not know the man who shot him.
