TOLEDO, OH – A Toledo Police Officer was recognized today for his life saving effort back in December that is being credited for saving a gunshot victim’s life.
On 12/2/21 Officer Emery responded to 3100 N. Detroit on a call of a person shot. Once on scene, Ofc. Emery found a victim suffering from a gunshot wound to his upper torso. After checking with dispatch on the location of Fire and Rescue crews, he was informed that they were on the way but not yet close.
Hearing this, Ofc. Emery decided to transport the critically injured victim himself to St. Vincent’s hospital. Within two and a half minutes after finding the victim, Officer Emery had him to the emergency room.
“Through this quick action, the victim did survive his wounds,” the Toledo Police Department said.
