POINT PLACE, Ohio – Two Toledo police officers who were responding to a stabbing in Point Place late Thursday morning stunned, shot, and killed a man after he attacked them with pipes.
Toledo Police Chief Mike Navarre said three officers responded to a residential area on Northridge Drive off Suder Avenue at around 11 a.m.
During an afternoon news conference at the Toledo Police Safety Building downtown, Chief Navarre said the suspect who was shot and killed by police is identified as 29-year-old Pyon Simmons.
The responding officers located a male suspect in the street and tried to get him to comply with orders. When the suspect refused to cooperate with police, he attacked two of the officers with pipes.
The two officers, a male and female, were both hit several times on their upper body, including the head. Moments later, he was hit with a stun gun three times. The three officers fired their stun guns at Simmons but he allegedly grabbed a trash can and deflected two of the prongs.
One of the electrical prongs did hit Simmons, who fell to the ground.
Chief Navarre said the suspect yanked the stun gun prong from his body, stood up, and then charged at the officers again. Seconds later, two of the three officers pulled out their guns and fatally shot the suspect.
The officers discharged their weapon four times. Two of the shots hit Simmons on the side of his body and another shot to the head.
“The officers were struck multiple times,” Chief Navarre said during an afternoon news conference. “Officer Dave O’Brien was assaulted. He was struck in the side of the head in the back and suffered a very large gash. He was sutured up at the hospital.”
“Officer Any Shaner was struck several times,” the chief added. “She took one on top of the head, which broke one of those metal pipes in half. If you were out at the scene and you saw one of those pipes broken in half, that was the result of the top of Officer Amy Shaner’s head. She was also struck twice in the side of the head – once right across the left ear and she was struck in the throat. I believe she was also struck on the wrist as she tried to deflect one of his attacks.”
Both of the injured officers were transported to Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center for treatment. The third officer, who assisted in trying to apprehend Mr. Simmons, was identified as Officer James Mawer. Chief Navarre said he did not go to the hospital for treatment.
Toledo police got a call from a woman, identified as Su Simmons, being driven to an area hospital after she told dispatchers she was stabbed by her son at her home in the 2100 block of Northridge Drive. She told police dispatch her son had some sort of mental problems and was still near the house.
She was allegedly stabbed twice by her son, Pyon, inside and outside the residence.
When the officers arrived, a neighbor told them Mr. Simmons was trying to steal his truck. He then approached and swung pipes at the officers. He landed several blows on two of the officers.
Neither of their injuries are expected to be life-threatening, but Chief Navarre said Officer O’Brien is in serious condition.
Su Simmons’ condition is unknown.
This is the third fatal shooting by Toledo police in 2009.
The shooting and alleged stabbing remain under investigation.

Late wednesday night, Myspace whore “Hurricane Chris” from Louisiana hacked into former Myspace Admin “Jason Feffer”s first Myspace account, by using a exploit to send Jasons password straight to Chris’s current email. he also stated that Tom Anderson used the account, by looking at old messages seeing what others posted to the account, such as “Hi Tom”, etc.
the account was created way back from: Signup Date: 8/19/2003 And was one of the first 1,100 accounts created.
Chris is a well known Myspace Hacker/Password Cracker. He reports he has hacked into thousands of email accounts, and hundreds of Myspace accounts. (low IDS) just by using his brain, his well known aim screename “rwntage” is how most of his hacker friends contact him. he says he does whatever he has to, in order to get money. witch means he hacks, then sells the Myspace accounts, witch is against Myspace TOS. he has been Ip banned several times from different computers (dns servers) he says it’s no problem, that he just gets more accounts and makes twice the money back.
Hurricane Chris has alot of fans, mostly from Myspace because of all of his accounts, along with his 250,000 Myspace friends profile that he has built up since he started on Myspace, he reports his main account is currently deleted. but is in process of getting it restored by another Myspace Admin he knows on aim. The admin does not know about the account he has hacked from former Admin “Jason Feffer” Chris is good friends with alot of old and new faces of the internet. including Ev0, Pad, And Dennis Hegstad.
Chris has always been the type thats wanted fame of doing what he does best, he might be the best new school Myspace hacker, I would keep a eye on him in the future, expected to hear more from him.
Chris has Facebook, Twitter, Myspace & Aim
AIM = RWNTAGE
here is a recent picture of Chris, taken from his cell phone.
