Toledo police are looking for information about the shooting of a man in East Toledo last month.

Houston Hines, 24, was shot in his left hip at 1:27 a.m. on Sept. 24 in the 700 block of Boles Drive, police said.

The victim reported he was outside to get fresh air when he was approached by two men who asked the victim's name. The victim answered, but he reportedly refused to speak more with the suspects.
