When police arrived, there was a vehicle with multiple gun shots stopped in the middle of the road. According to police, multiple shots were fired.

‘It’s really hard to tell when anything is going to happen anywhere anymore,’ Tina Scott of the West Toledo Neighborhood Association told via WTOL.
Scott and fellow association members expressed unease over recent violence in the area which included a recent shooting on Lyman Avenue along with a stabbing on Asbury Street.
‘Unfortunately the violence has progressed over the years and we’re going to try to work with the city and Toledo Police Department and figure out how we can alleviate this violence,’ reiterated Scott.
Victim, Richard Villolovos is no stranger to police.
In 2012 he and his brother were accused of injuring six people after gunfire erupted outside the now closed Mugshots Bar in North Toledo.
They were each charged with five counts of felonious assault.
Charges were thrown out and the men released after witnesses refused to cooperate.
To date authorities have made no arrests in relation to Sunday morning’s shootings. It is thought the identity of the assailant at present was unknown.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Crime Stopper program at 419-255-1111.
