CLEVELAND URBAN NEWS.COM-CLEVELAND, Ohio-One man was shot dead and four injured after a shooting in a car early Wednesday morning in East Cleveland out side of Club Dew Drop at the corner of Ivanhoe and Euclid Avenues, a high crime area.
Police were called to the bar shortly after 12 am Wednesday morning with neighbors reporting they allegedly hear some 30 gunshots.
All five of the shooting victims are Black and police say they have no suspects but are questioning witnesses, including a woman they stopped who was driving a red camaro.
Of the four who were injured three were flown to a nearby hospital by helicopter and are in critical condition.
"The motive either at this point is gang related or there was an immediate altercation that happened in the parking lot," a spokesman for the East Cleveland Police Department said.
The Cuyahoga County medical examiners office has not released the identity of the victims though police are searching for three suspects, Marvin Christopher Bryant, 19; DeAundre Smith, 19; and Tony Ricks, 21.
All three are Black.
