19, 20-year-old shot, killed in north Toledo

TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) - Toledo police are investigating a double shooting Thursday night in north Toledo.

The shooting happened at 2823 North Erie Street just after 7 p.m.

Toledo police say 20-year-old Santiago Rease and 19-year-old Colleen Stamper both suffered at least one gunshot wound and were pronounced dead at the scene.

Police have identified the victims as boyfriend and girlfriend.

Chief George Kral tweeted Friday morning in response to Toledo's latest homicides:

Mayor Kapszukiewicz also commented, saying, "This senseless criminal activity further demonstrates the need for bold action to address gun violence in our community. Police Chief Kral and I continue to discuss implementation of a local version of "Not In My House", a program that involves parents and grandparents turning in weapons and drugs owned by a juvenile in their home with no legal consequences. This violence is not acceptable, and neither is sheltering those who commit these violent acts."

Police say they are investigating the double homicide as a possible robbery situation.

They continue to gather evidence and do not have anyone in custody at this time.

This marks four homicides in Toledo in 2018. One has been solved.
