TOLEDO (WTOL) - A man who was shot by police in a drug raid Thursday night around 11 p.m. in the 200 block of Wasaon near Western faces charges of drug trafficking.
Police Chief Mike Navarre says detectives from the vice unit and the SWAT team went to the duplex with a search warrant to look for drugs. The officers yelled "Police!" then went up to the second floor, finding the door open and a man inside holding a shotgun.
An officer fired on the suspect, Perry Buck, hitting him in the wrist. Buck was taken to an ambulance; we are told his injuries are not serious. He and a woman were both taken into custody.
Toledo police confiscated marijuana, a 20-gauge shotgun and shells and Vicodin from the residence.
The Lucas County dog warden also confiscated two dogs.
Navarre says this is proof of the danger officers face every day.
"I've said it before and I'll say it again: These officers have a very dangerous job out there. And when they have to execute these search warrants and go through these doors, they never know what they are going to face on the other side. Tonight was just another example where the officers went in and looked down the barrel of a shot gun. We're very fortunate that no officers were injured tonight," Navarre said.
