Store owner shot in North Toledo

A North Toledo store owner was shot multiple times about 7:30 Wednesday night at the business, Our Food Market, 454 East Streicher St.

Mohammad “Mike” Abaza was taken to Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center. A hospital spokesman said there was no information about a patient by that name. His injuries were not believed to be life-threatening, Toledo police Sgt. William Wauford said.

The motive was unknown. Two men walked into the store. One took out a gun and fired, Sergeant Wauford said.

“That's pretty cold — they just come in and shoot him,” Sergeant Wauford said.

Mr. Abaza was shot in the hand in 2003 as he struggled with two masked men who tried to rob the store at gunpoint.
