TPD: no evidence 2 deadly shootings connected

Posted: Updated:

Toledo Police say they have no reason link the deadly Sunday overnight shootings of two young Toledo men.

The incidents happened just hours apart and both men were coincidentally named Michael, Jr.

The first shooting happened around 1:15 a.m. on Sunday morning at the intersection Greenwood and Walden. Twenty-year-old Michael Macklin, Jr. was shot in the face.

Officers say someone filed multiple shots at Macklin's car and hit him at least once. He later died at the hospital.

The second shooting happened three hours later. Twenty-four-year-old Michael William, Jr. was shot near the intersection of Auburn and Ottawa. Detectives found him dead in the middle of the intersection.

Courtney Arterbridge lives in the neighborhood. "It's right down the street and I have grandboys, five grandboys, it could happen to anyone's child."

Investigators are hoping a SkyCop camera in the area will give them some answers to the Auburn shooting.

No arrests have been made in either case and police continue their investigation.
