Teen shot at Weiler Homes

Posted: Updated:

Toledo Police say a 15-year-old was shot at the Weiler Homes in Toledo on Sunday night.

He was hit under the armpit and they say his injuries are not life threatening. The teen is recovering in the hospital.

The gang unit was at the scene conducting an investigation, though police won't confirm if the shooting was indeed gang-related. They say they are still searching for suspects.

Neighbor Jessica Magris says she called an ambulance as soon as she realized what happened. "I just seen people was running and heard gun shots, so I came down here to see what happened. A friend of ours got shot."

She says the victim is a good kid who goes to school and doesn't do anything wrong.

Margris says she stayed with the teen until help arrived and transported the victim to St. V's.

Mercy St. Vincent Medical center was on lockdown as a precaution after the shooting, but resumed normal operations within two hours.
