Autopsy Monday for man shot in East Toledo store


Toledo police are continuing to investigate the shooting death of a man in an East Toledo business.

William La-mar Carswell, 54, was shot at Main Street Exchange, 134 Main St., at about 4 p.m. Saturday. An autopsy is planned for Monday, said Dr. James Patrick, Lucas County coroner.

Authorities said a man who helped out in the store reported he left Mr. Carswell in the business with two unknown men. He returned soon after to find Mr. Carswell in the back room, dead with a gunshot wound to the back, police said. The family-owned resale shop has been open just more than a year.
