CLEVELAND - Cleveland police are looking for two men who might be connected to two shootings on the city’s east side last year, including one that resulted in the death of a 15-year-old girl.
The two men were spotted on video from a shooting that happened on Nov. 2 at the Marathon gas station on St. Clair Avenue.
The police report said a 23-year-old customer was ordering food, when she heard gunshots outside. Several people ran into the gas station followed by a man with a gun, who was shooting at the ground.
The woman was hit in the thigh by a ricochet bullet, the police report said. Another witness said he saw the suspect with a sliver gun before hiding in the bathroom.
Cleveland police said the same men may be involved in a homicide that happened a year ago this week. Just after 1 a.m. Monday, a Cleveland officer heard gunshots near East 38th Street and Longwood Avenue.
According to the police report, one witness told officers he saw two men firing guns and told them to “Drop it.” The witness said one suspect tossed the gun, and then fled.
During the gunfire, 15-year-old Danica Nelson was shot in the head . She died the next day. The police report said a 20-year-old man was shot in the foot and another 16-year-old girl was grazed by a bullet.
In September, police arrested Kenneth White , of Cleveland, and charged him with one count of aggravated murder for the crime. But police said two men are still on the loose.
Anyone with information about these two men should call the Cleveland Division of Police Homicide Unit at 216-623-5464. Crime Stoppers accepts anonymous tips at 216-252-7463. You can also text your tip by sending “TIP657” to 274637.
