Man shot, killed after argument at bus shelter on Cleveland’s East Side


A 53-year-old man is dead after he was shot several times at a bus shelter on the city’s East Side.

The shooting happened about 2:30 p.m.  near the intersection of East 125th Street and Superior Avenue, near the border with East Cleveland, Cleveland police spokeswoman Sgt. Jennifer Ciaccia said.

First responders found the man suffering from several gunshot wounds, Ciaccia said. He was taken to University Hospitals, where he died.

Investigators learned that the man had been arguing with a woman at a bus shelter when another man approached them. The two men exchanged gunfire, police said.

The 53-year-old man will be publicly identified by the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner’s Office once his family is notified. Cleveland police are still working to identify the shooter, and no arrests have been made, Ciaccia said.

Between about 7 p.m. Friday and 6 a.m. Sunday, Cleveland police have investigated 14 shootings in which someone was hurt, not including the homicide investigation. Thirteen of those shootings involved male victims, and 10 of those men were in their 20s, according to police.

In the 24-period between Thursday and Friday mornings, 11 people were shot in Cleveland, including an 8-year-old child.
