Toledo police make arrest in September murder


A man currently in police custody on other charges is facing a murder charge in the September shooting death of a man whose body was found outside an Old West End home.

Toledo police announced Monday morning that they have charged Kijuan Hunley, 29, with the murder of Victor Johnson, 34, who was shot to death at approximately 1 a.m. on Sept. 17 in the 2400 block of Hollywood.

Police said the suspect is currently in custody on other charges.

Toledo police located Johnson's bullet-riddled body in the backyard of an Old West End residence at 2413 Hollywood Ave. at 10:17 a.m., and determined that he had been gunned down hours earlier.

At the time of his death, Johnson lived at 2030 Ashland Ave. and had been scheduled to appear in Toledo Municipal Court the next month on charges of drug possession and trafficking.

A little more than an hour after the discovery of Johnson's body, police discovered the body of Cindy Sumner, 21, in the basement of an abandoned North Toledo warehouse at 1510 Elm St. No one has been arrested in that case.
