A man hospitalized after a South Toledo shooting died Thursday.
Gordon Capshaw, 75, of the 2300 block of Broadway, was pronounced dead at 4:56 p.m. Thursday at Mercy Health St. Vincent Medical Center. He was transported to the hospital Wednesday after police responded to reports of a shooting at 520 Emerald Ave. shortly after 3 p.m.
An autopsy is scheduled for Friday, Lucas County Coroner’s Office officials said.
The man accused of shooting him — Christopher Krauzer, 49, of Toledo — appeared Thursday morning in Toledo Municipal Court. His bond was set at $500,000, and a preliminary hearing is scheduled for Sept. 13.

He was originally charged with felonious assault, but that charge will likely change follow Mr. Capshaw’s death.
Police in responding to Wednesday’s shooting found Mr. Krauzer, armed with a rifle. Toledo police Lt. Kevan Toney, a department spokesman, said officers believed the gunman on scene initially wanted to “commit suicide by police.” He did not aim or fire his weapon at police and surrendered without incident.
“Police came on scene and right off the bat, they were able to have a position of cover,” Lieutenant Toney said. “That afforded us the opportunity to talk with him.”
Negotiators persuaded the suspect to drop his weapon after “a couple minutes,” Lieutenant Toney said.
Mr. Capshaw’s death marks the 32nd homicide of the year in Toledo city limits and the 33rd in the metro area.
