The slaying was the 27th in 2013 in metro Toledo, 26 of which have been in the city.

A neighbor, Monetta Stiles, was watching television Sunday night when she heard booming sounds.

Her first thought was that a power transformer had blown.

Ms. Stiles, 50, said she did not realize it was a shooting until police cars arrived.

" I just saw her last week. I was coming in and she was too, bringing groceries," Ms. Stiles said. "I feel sad about it. And to know it was so close to home."

"It is tragic," she added. "I feel very sorry for the victim and her family."

Other neighbors said the victim was heard arguing with a man just before being shot. Toledo police confirmed that the victim was shot but released no other details, including the possible motive.

Sgt Joe Heffernan said today police investigators were still "trying to figure out what happened."
