TOLEDO, Ohio -
A Toledo man was shot and killed after he tried to rob another man early Saturday morning. The man who opened fire in self defense is a Walbridge police officer, according to Toledo Police.
It all happened around 2:30 a.m. on Upton Avenue near Berkshire Place. Travis K. Johnson, 21, of Toledo, was shot and killed by the off-duty officer.
Detectives say the officer and a friend were walking to the friend's home. Johnson confronted the pair at gunpoint demanding money.
Police say that's when the off-duty officer pulled out his gun and fired, hitting Johnson at least once.
Johnson was pronounced dead at the scene.
No charges have been filed against the off-duty officer. He has been put on an automatic three-day leave while Toledo Police complete their investigation.
I am glad they rewarded the nice officer with a 3 day vacation!
(no I am not being sarcastic)
Better to be tried by twelve than carried by six, but being on the wrong side of the interrogation table is hell.
Been there, done that, got the tee-shirt.
was the perp amish?
Yes, I believe that Travis is a very popular in the Amish Community, as is Tyrone, DeShaw and Jamal.
