AUDIO: TPD call in double shooting in Polish Village

Dozens of Toledo police officers converged on the Polish Village scene, where relatives shrieked and wailed in the aftermath of the violence.

A series of evidence cones from the curb to the porch indicated officers believed at least 10 shots were fired toward the house.

Police were said to be searching for two suspects, who were described as two black males wearing black skull caps and hoodies. The two were believed to have fled the scene in a vehicle.

One victim's body was discovered near the front of the house and the other body was taken from further inside the house

The identities of the deceased were not released.

A woman who rushed to the scene, Ethel Edwards, said just a few months ago she had buried a grandson.

"I need to know," she said to officers on the scene.

She said she was looking for her other grandson, John Hill, who she thought would be at the house with friends.

Knots of people at the scene were awaiting word from the authorities. After officials spoke to the group, one woman wailed, "Somebody took my baby!"

Life squads were dispatched to the East Pearl Street area earlier in the evening, but it was quickly determined they were not needed.

Several people were at the detective bureau for questioning.

Two vehicles from the Lucas County Coroner's division arrived and workers removed two bodies from the house just after 11 p.m.

According to the Lucas County Auditor's Office, the house at 25 E. Pearl St. is owned by Marcus Osley.
