When Mr. Holmes was removed from the car, a bullet hole was discovered in the door, police said.

Mr. Holmes was shot at least once, causing his death, according to the Lucas County Coroner’s Office. Police did not specify where he was shot.

Toledo police confirmed Mr. Holmes was believed to be involved in a recent shoot-out between vehicles in West Toledo Dec. 6. 

“That’s an angle that detectives are looking into,” Toledo Police Department spokesman Sgt. Kevan Toney said. 

Mr. Holmes was charged with discharge of a firearm over a public road and improperly handling firearms in a motor vehicle. A Toledo Municipal Court judge released him on his own recognizance.

Police responded to gunshots in the area of Dryden Drive and Lewis Avenue while two vehicles fired several rounds at each other, according to police. 

No one was injured during that incident. 

The case is now being investigated as a homicide.

As of Tuesday afternoon, no one had been arrested. 

No one answered the door at Mr. Holmes’ residence Tuesday night.

Anyone with information should contact the Crime Stopper program at 419-255-1111.
