Man dies after being shot in chest

TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) - A man has died after being shot at an apartment building in Toledo early Tuesday morning.

The shooting occurred on East Broadway Street near Mason Street around 2 a.m.

Toledo police say Travis Perkins, 44, was shot in the chest by the building manager after the two got into an altercation.

Perkins was sleeping on the front porch of the rooming house when the building manager tried to get Perkins to leave.

This led to the argument and the shooting.

Perkins was rushed to St. Vincent's Hospital with serious injuries.

He later died at the hospital.

No charges have been filed as the investigation is still ongoing.

Lieutenant Joe Heffernan said police won't identify the building manager until the investigation is over.

This is Toledo's 19th homicide on the year.
