Shots fired investigation on Lagrange

By  | 

TOLEDO (WTVG) - Gunshots rang out in one north end neighborhood and for one family it was a close call.

We first broke news about a 'shots fired' investigation along Lagrange Street Saturday morning and some living nearby are fed up with the crime.

Gunshots are something the Beeler family hears from time to time, but Saturday morning they got a rude awakening.

Linda Beeler and her husband woke up to gunshots and saw that someone shot through their second story bathroom window. The bullet pierced through their mirror and wall, just feet from where they were sleeping.

They've lived here for two years and say something has to change.

"I just want the violence to stop, I don't bother nobody," said Linda Beeler. "It's a very close call to one of our lives. If it had stayed to the right, it would've hit me and my husband in my head while we're sleeping."

This happened around 5:00am Saturday along the 3800 block of Lagrange.

Patrick Cleghorn runs Dog Track Collision and Custom car shop next door and is noticing the uptick in suspicious activity.

"Just nuisances and running people outta here, shooting and drag racing down the street," said Cleghorn. "There's like garbage, debris always all over the place and glass, cars always parked all over my property."

Cleghorn says the constant groups of people loitering at night has him worried about property damage and safety.

"I can't even keep cars out here, I gotta lock up all my cars in here because I fear they're gonna sabotage all my cars so it's affecting all of our businesses around here.But we would like it for someone to take care of the problem."

We are told Toledo Police did recover multiple shell casings in the immediate area.

So far there is no word from detectives on who could be responsible for the overnight disturbances. If you have any information, call Crimestopper at 419-255-1111.
