South Toledo news this morning:
South Toledo Shots Hit Mother, 4-year-old
The mother and son were shot when a robbery victim tried to flee into their home, according to police reports. Christopher Henry, 28, who also lives in the pair's Byrneport apartment, was approached outside the building by three men. Two of them men wore black sweat suits, while a third, taller man wore a gray hooded sweatshirt.
The men asked Mr. Henry if he knew whether another man lived in the apartment; when he said no, they assaulted him and stole $200 from him. Mr. Henry fled the men, according to police reports, and tried to run into the apartment. The man in the gray sweat shirt pulled out a black semiautomatic pistol and shot at him.
A bullet went through the front door, striking Ms. Felder and her son. A witness saw the three robbers flee through a playground, and shortly after saw a dark-colored minivan speed away.
Hopefully, some arrests come soon.
Question: why were the victims--one a critically wounded child--taken all the way to Toledo Hospital (nearly 6 miles away according to Google) when UTMC is literally right around the corner??
