TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) - Toledo Police were responding to a call of shots fired when they came under fire themselves. A Toledo man now faces charges in connection with the incident.
It happened early Tuesday morning on the 1100 block of Tecumseh Street in central Toledo.
Police were responding to a call when they came across a pair of suspects walking down the street. The officers trailed them and as the suspects entered a house, police said one turned and fired a shot toward the police car.
Police said the men barricaded themselves inside the house before one climbed out a front window to surrender. A team of officers then got inside the home and found the other suspect hiding upstairs.
Bryan Terrance, 25, is charged with felonious assault on a police officer and obstructing official business. Myron Bagner, 20, is charged with obstructing official business.
Police recovered a shotgun, a pistol and ammunition inside the home.
According to police, this is the second time this year officers have been shot at by civilians. Still, officers are not any more concerned than usual.
"It's a risky job anytime an officer goes into work. They know the risk, but I don't think there's any more of a risk now. I don't want to make light of this, but we take that risk when we go out there. It's part of the job," said Captain Wes Bombrys of the Toledo Police.
No one was hurt in the incident.
