A Toledo man told police he was shot in his abdomen Wednesday night after giving a woman a ride.

Duane Peoples, 55, was shot in his abdomen and left leg at approximately 11:10 p.m. He was taken to Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center for treatment; his condition was not available today.

According to a Toledo police report, Mr. Peoples told police a woman he knows only as "Stella" asked him for a ride to Fulton and Islington streets in Toledo's Olde Towne neighborhood. Once they arrived at the intersection, two young men approached the car and started shooting.

Mr. Peoples drove his vehicle back to his home on Fulton where he collapsed in the doorway.
