Toledo man shot in home while watching OSU/Michigan game

Posted: Updated:
TOLEDO, Ohio -

A Toledo man was shot inside his cousin's home while watching the OSU/Michigan game on Saturday afternoon.

Just after 2 p.m., police received multiple reports of gunshots fired in the Nebraska and Hawley area. But it was at a house in the 900 block of Blum Street where a man was shot inside his cousin's home while watching the Ohio State/Michigan game with family and friends.

The family of 29-year-old Rick Hicks says he was shot three time in the chest. The home was riddled with bullets. More than a dozen rounds pierced the doors and walls.

Hicks was hit while sitting on the couch. His cousin Shaun Crowley says he doesn't understand why.

"Rick was a good dude, working guy; don't cause problems. Just over visiting family, just like me hanging out watching the game and shots come flying through the window."

Cousin Mike Douglas says the family is praying. "I would like for ya'll to keep him in your prayers."

Hicks is recovering in the hospital and officers say he is expected to survive. Police are still trying to track down the person who fired the shots.

Witnesses reported seeing a gold Buick leaving the scene at a high rate of speed and are still looking for tips.
