Quinn, 26, of Toledo, was shot just before 1 a.m. today after an argument broke out in a parking lot in front of Royale Place, 4216 Airport Hwy.

Dr. Maneesha Pandy, a Lucas County deputy coroner, said today that an autopsy showed Quinn was shot at least three times, once in the head, once in the torso, and once in the left arm. Dr. Pandy ruled the death a homicide.

Quinn was pronounced dead at the scene, she said.

Quinn's death marks the 28th homicide in Toledo, and 29th in the metro area this year.

When police arrived at the South Toledo club, Quinn had a gun “on his person,” Sgt. Heffernan said.

“The person who shot him … did make contact with police right away, surrendered his firearm right away,” Sgt. Heffernan said.

Jomar Quinn was found shot outside Royale Place at 4216 Airport Highway, after 1 a.m.

The shooter, who has a conceal-carry permit, gave police his side of the story and, after numerous other interviews, police and the Lucas County prosecutors office decided not to charge the shooter “right now.”

Sgt. Heffernan could not comment on whether the shooter was a patron or employee of the club. He would also not comment on whether Quinn, or anyone else, fired any shots.

It was not clear what the initial argument in the parking lot was about or who all was involved.

No other injuries were reported.

Quinn, who should not have had a gun because he'd been previously convicted of a felony, was scheduled for arraignment today in Lucas County Common Pleas Court.

He was charged in July with carrying a concealed weapon and receiving stolen property after he was found to have a stolen gun.

The .38-caliber revolver, it turned out, had been stolen from a Toledo police officer's Perrysburg apartment five years earlier.
