Toledo cop killed; police question teen
TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — A detective was shot and killed early today while chasing a 15-year-old boy who police say was apparently involved in a drug deal.
A few hours later, the boy surrendered to police at a duplex where he had been hiding. Police spokeswoman Diana Ruiz-Krause said the arrest of Robert Jobe was made without incident and he was being questioned by officers.
Detective Keith Dressel, 35, is the first Toledo officer to die in the line of duty since 1970 when a patrolman was shot and killed during a race riot.
The detective was shot once in the chest during the chase through a thick fog, said Police Chief Mike Navarre.
