Residents disagree on whether TPD cameras could help Moody Manor

TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Residents of the Moody Manor apartment complex in central Toledo say although the shooting that happened there Thursday night was shocking and very sad, it was just another of many violent crimes perpetrated there in recent years.

Two children, 1-year-old Keondra Hooks and her 2-year-old sister Leondra were, shot through the glass door of their Moody Manor apartment Thursday night.  Keondra later died of her injuries.  Leondra is in critical condition but expected to recover.

"You don't want to let your kids out and play. You just want to stay sitting in the house, because it's that bad, you never know what's going to happen," said resident Cassandra Wells.

Its extensive history of violence, combined with Thursday's shootings have caused some to wonder whether Moody Manor will be the location of any of the city's soon-to-be installed surveillance cameras. 

"In a case like this I do believe we would have some in that area that would make a difference," said Toledo Police Sergeant Joe Heffernan, speaking about Moody Manor.

The city's 150 camera real time surveillance network is currently being constructed. Police have not yet released the locations of the cameras, saying they are studying crime data to determine the best placement of each camera.

Wells has an idea of where police could put at least one camera, saying "right there smack in the middle of the parking lot if you ask me. Yup, so they can see everything."

Sharmela Harris, who also lives at Moody Manor, disagrees saying "You still going to have people fighting. You still going to have stabbings. You still going to have shootings. Everything is still going to happen, so the camera's not going to help."

Another Moody Manor resident, Kevin Martin, says putting cameras in just some areas of the city will not solve the problem.

"It's still going to be going on other places too though, you can't just look over here like it's just all bad over here, when it's happening all around Toledo," said Martin.

Police are still searching for those responsible for Thursday's shooting. Anyone with information is asked to call CrimeStopper at 419-255-1111.
