Youth shot multiple times in East Toledo


A 16-year-old Toledo boy was shot multiple times Sunday night in East Toledo.

Deandre Douglas was taken to Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center after being shot in his upper left chest and back at 11:24 p.m., according to a police incident report.

A hospital spokesman had no information about the patient.

Police report that the youth was walking on Woodford Street, near Whittemore Street, and was approached by two males who asked for the teen's phone. After giving the suspects the phone, they yelled, "This is a stick up," and punched the boy.

The teen fled and was shot. Police found the boy on the ground at Whittmore and Caledonia Street.
