TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) -

A man was shot and killed in a central Toledo apartment complex Thursday morning. 

The shooting occurred at the Moody Manor apartments on Kent Street and Page around 1 a.m. 

Police were called to the scene after hearing reports that a man had been shot.

Police say they found 31-year-old Larry Pendleton dead in the apartment when they arrived. Police say Pendleton suffered from at least one gunshot wound.

Police say 22-year-old Lavell Allen was later located and arrested.

A SWAT team was called to the scene because police believed ta second person may have bee involved in the shooting.

Police trained their weapons on the attic and threw tear gas into the attic, but no one came out.

Police say they now believe only Allen was involved. Police say Allen has no prior felonies.

Police say Allen and Pendleton were friends and the shooting stemmed from an argument. Police say both men lived at Moody Manor. 

Police say Moody Manor has been a problem area in the past. In 2013, one-year-old Keondra Hooks was shot and killed. Her sister was also injured in the shooting. 

Since then, the apartment complex installed 41 crime cameras and police say Moody Manor has been quiet.

Allen is charged with murder and is being held on a $1 million bond.

He will appear in court for a preliminary hearing on January 29.

This is Toledo's fifth murder of the year. In January of 2017, there were four murders.

Police called these numbers concerning.
