Police seek shooter in north Toledo double homicide

TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Toledo Police are searching for the person who shot and killed two people in north Toledo Monday evening.

Investigators say Darnell Green, 23, and John Hill, 25, were found shot near the corner of Pearl Street and Franklin Avenue around 8:15 p.m. Monday.

As of now, police have no suspects and no leads, but say there could be more than one person responsible.

"Whoever did this did a horrible, horrible thing, shooting into a house full of people like that. We need to get somebody like that off our streets," said Sgt. Joe Heffernan.

Police say whoever it was had their sights set on the north Toledo home. 

"I don't think that whoever did this just randomly picked a house out. I think that they had some reason to, or some problem with some people that were associated with the house," explained Heffernan.

Shattered glass is a violent reminder of what happened.

"The door was open, storm door was closed. At least one, maybe more shooters approached the house, fairly close up to the house, and started shooting," Heffernan said.

Neighbors say they heard rapid shots fired and then saw a male in dark clothing running away.

  • Algae bloom reaches the Maumee River

    Algae bloom reaches the Maumee River

    Wednesday, September 20 2017 12:58 PM EDT2017-09-20 16:58:19 GMT

    For the past 2 months we've been tracking the harmful algae bloom on Lake Erie, but in the past 24 hours it has moved into the Maumee River.  Thanks to calm weather this move has been possible. While widespread algae on the river is not likely, scum along the shores is possible through Toledo. The warm weather the next few days means the bloom is likely to continue. Right now the bloom is not an immediate danger to the Toledo water intake.  Credit: Pete Hustwayte ...
