Woman shot at west Toledo home where man was stabbed to death in weekend homicide

Police are investigating whether the two crimes are connected.

TOLEDO, Ohio — Around midnight, Toledo police responded to an incident at a home on the 1700 block of Wyndhurst for the second time this week. 

According to detectives on the scene, someone approached the house and began firing, shooting a woman who lived at the home as she stood outside.

The woman, later identified as Melody Burress, sustained non-life-threatening injuries and was transported to the hospital. 

On Sunday morning, 20-year-old Marcus Odoms was stabbed to death at the same address of tonight's shooting on Wyndhurst.

A family member tells WTOL they believe the shooting is in retaliation for the stabbing after several threatening social media posts were made. Police are looking into this link.

The motive for the shooting, and whether or not it was connected to Odoms' murder, has not yet been released.

No arrest has been made in the incident. The shooting is under investigation.

This is a developing story.
