During a summer where
there seems to be an inordinate number of shootings, Toledo Police are
investigating another. This one occurred at Auburn and Ottawa, in a part of
town police call BUMA.
BUMA is named for the four
streets that border the area: Bancroft, Upton, Monroe and Auburn. Police say
one of the area gangs operates within that perimeter.
One man was shot Monday
morning outside a popular after-hours club called The Wash.
TPD was called to Toledo
Hospital at 3:30 Monday morning after the victim, Carrington Brown, drove
himself to the emergency room. Brown told police he was standing outside of the
club when he heard shots fired and was hit in the arm.
In March, Michael
Williams, Jr, was shot and killed outside the same club, where police say they
have often had problems.
"We've had numerous
incidents there over the years," said TPD Sgt. Joe Heffernan. "We keep applying
pressure over there. We have officers, SWAT, our gang unit over there pretty
regularly, but we can't be everywhere all the time."
Heffernan says the crime
camera did capture video of this recent shooting. Investigators are reviewing
the footage, but if anyone has information that can help them with this
investigation, they should call Crime Stopper at 419-255-1111. Callers may
