The deputy coroner ruled both deaths a homicide.
Police say an investigation into a double homicide in Albion led them to the 600 block of Leech at Weiler Homes. A member of the Critical Incident Negotiation Team attempted to de-escalate the situation, but the suspect did not comply with officers’ instructions to drop the gun, a department spokesman said. The assailant finally got out of the vehicle with a gun in his hand. Police attempted further negotiations with the suspect, but when that failed, the officers shot the suspect. Our media partner, the Toledo Blade, reports that officers shot Jones seven times. Emergency crews took him to an area hospital, where he later died.
