Toledo Officer Critically Wounded in Shooting

November 16, 2017  | 

A Toledo, OH, police officer was shot and wounded in the line of duty early this morning. It happened when Toledo police officers tried to serve a search warrant at a home around 2:15 Thursday morning.

The wounded officer has now been identified. Toledo Police Chief George Kral named him as Detective Jason Picking, a veteran of the force. He is currently in critical but stable condition at Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center. The bullet that struck Det. Picking entered through his cheek and remains lodged in his neck, according to Chief Kral.

Chief Kral says the wounded officer was hit by gunfire away from the home. Kral told reporters at a press conference that SWAT officers had surrounded the home in order to serve a warrant, and that someone inside opened fire. The bullet missed the SWAT team officers, but struck Detective Picking who was nearby in a support role, 13ABC reports.
