Autopsy finds West Toledo shooting victim shot 6 times, stabbed twice


The man found dead in a West Toledo apartment Sunday morning suffered numerous injuries.

Michael Jackson, 20, was shot six times, stabbed twice, and beaten about the face, said Lucas County Deputy Coroner Dr. Diane Scala-Barnett who performed an autopsy on the victim.

The gunshot wounds, which were the fatal injuries, were concentrated in the victim's chest and arms. The victim was stabbed once each in a hip and thigh.

The victim also suffered blunt-force injuries to his head and face, presumably from the butt of the gun.

Mr. Jackson, who was sleeping when he was attacked, did not appear to have any defense wounds.

He was found dead at about 3 a.m. at 1605 W. Central Ave.

The victim's girlfriend, Amber Hayes, called police and reported that her estranged husband, David Zielinski, shot Mr. Jackson.

Police have charged Mr. Zielinski with murder, but he remains at large.

Anyone with information on the suspect's whereabouts is asked to call Toledo police at 419-255-1111.
