Suspects sought in North Toledo shooting


Toledo police are looking for the perpetrators of a drive-by shooting Friday night in North Toledo.

Police said Sylvester Powell was shot in the leg about 10:45 p.m. outside his residence in the 1000 block of Booth Avenue.

He was taken to St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center for treatment of a bullet wound to the right inner thigh, then released.

Police said Mr. Powell was standing outside his home with his brother when a vehicle drove by slowly three times. The third time, a suspect yelled out the vehicle at the two men, then fired two or three shots.
