Statement On Officer-Involved Shooting

 

Toledo Mayor Wade Kapszukiewicz convened a diverse group of community leaders for a meeting tonight after an officer-involved shooting that occurred today.

The mayor conferred with representatives from the NAACP, African-American faith leaders, city council, police, and the prosecutor’s office after the officer-involved shooting at the intersection of Lagrange and Hudson streets.

“We don’t yet know all the facts in the case but we know anytime a human life is lost, it is a tragedy. A thorough and transparent investigation is already underway,” the mayor said. “The purpose of tonight’s meeting is to share information and to make sure whatever the next step we take in this process, that we take it together.”
