N. Toledo victim claims he was shot for yelling at youth

NORTH TOLEDO (WTOL) - Just minutes after police responded to a shooting in east Toledo, they were also called to a shooting in the 1800 block of Superior in north Toledo.

Police say the victim claimed he shouted at some young people making noise outside of his house. The victim said the young people threatened to come back later and kill him.

The victim, whose name has not yet been released, says the same group of people returned a few hours later and shot at him four times as he sat in his backyard. He was hit in the hip and treated at St Vincent Mercy Medical Center.

His condition has not yet been released, but police say he is expected to be ok.
