CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - A local teen was busted with a gun and the weapon could be tied to a murder.
A man pulled up to a police officer in a parking lot and told him a kid walking by has a gun. He also said the gun might have been used to kill.
The kid walking down East 116 near Union did have a loaded gun. Cops say he'd been walking with known gang members.
Cuyahoga County prosecutors say they're waiting to see what investigators can match the gun too.
The city's seen a rash of violence lately including the murder of Patricia Dawson shot as she was pumping gas and confronted by a group of men East 115 and St. Clair.
Meantime, the 17 year old is locked up on a concealed weapons charge.
