TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) - Police released the identity of the man shot and killed at an East Toledo apartment complex early Friday morning.

Toledo Police said Daevon Higgs, 22, was found suffering from a gunshot wound at Ravine Park Village, located at the corner of Seaman and Poplar, around 2:15 a.m.

Officials issued a murder warrant for Higgs Tuesday for the July 31 killing of Catherine Craig near N. Detroit Ave and Council St.

“It’s not super common that someone has a murder warrant and they’re murdered a few days after their murder warrant is issued for them. We do ask people to call or text crime stoppers with any information they have in this situation,” LT. Paul Davis said.

A 21-year-old was also shot while inside a vehicle with Craig, though those injuries were non-life-threatening.

Lt. Paul Davis said TPD will continue its efforts to reduce violence.

“We’ve done several initiatives this year through our team operations to reduce violent crime. We are seizing a bit more firearms this year than we did last year. I think it’s because of those operations, partnerships with the community coming out and supporting us, giving us information, and obviously having shotspotter in 3 different areas of the city is going to help us with that.

Those with information can contact Crime Stoppers at 419-255-1111.

TPD: Daevon Higgs was fatally shot at Ravine Park Village on August 5. Higgs was wanted on a murder warrant for the fatal shooting of Catherine Craig on July 31
