No suspects in Monday's double murder

Posted: Updated:

Toledo Police continue to look for the suspects responsible for a double murder Monday night.
Two men were killed inside a home at 25 East Pearl street near Lagrange after someone shot it up.

"He was not a bad person. He was a lovable person. If he could help you he would help you. He couldn't he would let you know he didn't deserve this," says Angela Hill, mother of victim John Hill.

She pleads for the suspects who shot and killed her son and his friend Darnell Green to turn themselves in.   

"What did my son do what did he do to deserve this tell me I want to know. Who ever did it come forth just come forth," says the grieving mother.
     
Monday night police were sent to a home at 25 East Pearl street after the home was shot up. 23-year-old Darnell Green and 25-year-old John Hill were hit and killed. There were several people inside. Detectives say the front door was open when suspects fired multiple shots through the glass screen from the curb.

A neighbor heard the shots.  "All of a sudden we heard the thumping and it was so many gunshots at first you couldn't tell it was gunshots until they kept going," says Sundara Henderson.
     
She says she saw a man run through her yard.

"I knew it was all black and I can tell you that I couldn't see what he look like or anything because he ran so fast," she says.    

Investigators say the victims never saw it coming. One victim was struck by a bullet while sitting on the couch. The other victim was shot in the head after a  bullet came through the kitchen wall. Hill's mother says her son enjoyed music and spent most of his time at a local studio. She has a message for who ever pulled the trigger.

"You're not only hurting me. He has a six-year-old little boy, and for me to see my grandbaby last night there at the scene, saying 'My daddy is at the studio. Nana, let's go to the studio and see my daddy.' My grandbaby didn't have no reason to see that who ever did this come forth," says Hill.

Police have no suspects in the case. They are talking to witnesses who were inside the home when the shots were fired. John Hills family will hold a vigil tonight at 6pm at 25 East Pearl Street.
