Toledo, OH – Chief George Kral with the Toledo Police Department said that one of his officers was shot and killed Monday evening in a standoff.
Officer Brandon Stalker was struck one time during the incident which began around 3:30pm Monday evening in the 2300 block of Fulton Street. Officers noticed a suspect at that location and believed he was wanted in connection to a cathedral being vandalized earlier in the day.
After police made contact with the suspect, he pulled out a firearm and went into a nearby house. SWAT and a negotiator were called to the scene. They negotiated with the man for several hours, and eventually used gas in the house.
