CLEVELAND - Cleveland Police had a busy Saturday night and early Sunday morning after three separate shootings occurred, leaving one man dead and others injured.
The first shooting happened around 8 p.m. in the 2500 block of East 109th Street . Upon arrival to the scene officers found the victim, 21-year-old Andell Johnson, was shot in the right leg.
Officers were told that Johnson’s mother called her landlord asking to have her two sons leave the property. The landlord responded to the address in company with a male suspect. The suspect and Johnson began to argue outside of the residence and the suspect allegedly shot Johnson in the leg.
The shooter and the landlord then fled the scene in a black automobile.
Johnson was taken to MetroHealth Medical Center by EMS, where he is being treated for his injuries.
The second shooting happened around 9 p.m. in the 5900 block of Superior Avenue when 32-year-old Dante Abrams and 31-year-old Anthony Jordan, both of Cleveland, were robbed.
Jordan told police they were walking westbound on Superior when they heard several shots fired in the area and started to run. They looked behind them they saw a male suspect running towards them with a revolver in his hand. Abrams and Jordan continued to run until the suspect began yelling at them to hand over any valuables. When Abrams took his money out of his pocket, the suspect shot Abrams twice in the face.
Abrams was taken to MetroHealth Medical center where he is currently being treated for gunshot wounds to the left side of his head and lower right side of his chin.
A few hours later, and a few blocks away around 12:40 a.m., a third shooting occurred in the 5300 block of St. Clair Avenue.
Police say 34-year-old Angelo Lyons of Cleveland and another male stepped outside the China House Restaurant to smoke. Once outside, Lyons was approached by a man who said, “Don’t you remember me?” and then shot Lyons once in the chest.
Lyons was taken to MetroHealth Medical Center where he died later from his injuries.
Cleveland police say at this time none of the shootings appear to be related.
