Shooting in north Toledo ruled a homicide; suspect in custody

The sister of the victim tells WTOL 11 on the scene that TPD detectives notified her that her 28-year-old brother had died after being shot 3 times on Elm Street.

TOLEDO, Ohio — A man is dead after a shooting in north Toledo on Wednesday night and an arrest warrant has been issued for a man suspected of pulling the trigger.

The older sister of the victim, Robert Kynard, approached WTOL 11 reporter Michael Tatar on the scene and said her 28-year-old brother had been killed.

She said that she and her mother had been informed by detectives around 9 p.m. that her younger brother had died.

On Thursday morning, Toledo police said a warrant has been issued for 27-year-old Rasheed Fisher. Fisher was taken into custody Tuesday, according to booking records.

Neighbors say they heard gunshots around 8 p.m., but told WTOL 11 on the scene that it’s not uncommon for the area.

Neighbors and the sister of the victim said they believe the shooting happened outside on Elm Street and that the victim had been shot three times.

Toledo police said Kynard was treated at the scene and taken to a hospital, where he later died. 

His sister described him as very hard-headed, but very respectful of everyone in the neighborhood on Elm Street.

Police taped off Elm Street from East Hudson to East Pearl streets during the investigation.

This is the 56th homicide in Toledo in 2021. In 2020, the city saw 61 total homicides.
