TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) -

Toledo police are investigating a homicide that occurred in north Toledo Saturday morning.

TPD says officers were dispatched to the area of Chestnut Street and East Weber Street on a call of shots heard around 6:30 a.m.

Crews arrived and found 55-year-old Jeffrey Wallace suffering from at least one gun shot wound. Additional crews were called and Wallace was pronounced deceased at the scene.

WTOL 11 has heard from the Wallace family, as this is the second tragedy for this family in recent months. In September, Wallace's niece, Deasia Wallace, died after being shot during a street brawl in Toledo

The family says they have no idea who would do this or why. They say that since Wallace did not have his ID on him when police arrived on scene, they were not notified until Sunday morning.

According to his family, Wallace was known across the city for his amazing cooking skills and fantastic barbeque. 

Police say Investigative Services Bureau personnel also responded to the scene and opened an investigation.

It is unknown if this incident is related to the shooting that occurred Saturday evening.

Anyone with information regarding this investigation is asked to call Crime Stopper at 419-255-1111.
