Two people were shot in separate incidents that occurred at almost the same time Wednesday evening.

A South Toledo man was shot in the leg during an apparent robbery at his home, police said.

Darryl Howard, 47, was taken to Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center. A hospital spokesman had no information about a patient by that name. The gunshot wound in the right leg was not believed to be life-threatening, but the injury was significant, Toledo police Sgt. William Wauford said.

Meanwhile, Perrysburg Township police were investigating a shooting reported after 8 p.m. in the Perrysburg Heights neighborhood. Police remained on the scene late Wednesday.

A Dodge Durango was seen in the area about the time of the shooting, authorities said.

Paramedics transported the victim to Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center. The victim’s name and condition were not reported.
