TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) – Authorities say a 15-year-old boy was fatally shot in northwest Ohio, and his 14-year-old sister has been arrested as the subject of the murder investigation.
Police say officers responding to a report of a shooting in Toledo found the wounded teen shortly before 9 p.m. Wednesday.
The Lucas County coroner tells The Blade newspaper that the boy suffered an apparent gunshot wound to the chest. He was pronounced dead at a hospital, and an autopsy was planned.
Police didn’t immediately release information about the circumstances of the shooting or any potential motive. The boy’s father told WTOL-TV he was puzzled by what happened and couldn’t explain it.
The Associated Press generally doesn’t identify juveniles charged with crimes.
