TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - Police say a teacher who was trying to help a stray dog in the parking lot of elementary school in Toledo instead came across a man who had been shot.
The teacher says the man came up to her Thursday and told her that he'd been shot.
A Toledo police spokesman says Matthew Roehrig of Defiance told officers that he was shot in the back after he had stopped and asked someone for directions.
Police told media outlets in Toledo that the man was taken to a hospital, but that his injuries were not life-threatening.
A Toledo schools spokeswoman says the shooting near the elementary school happened during parent-teacher conferences and led to a 30-minute lockdown.
