VICTIMS IDENTIFIED: CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - The two men killed in a shootout on Cleveland's Eastside have both been identified.

The victims have been identified as 22-year-old Arlandis Brown and 28-year-old Ghani Hamza.

Gunfire erupted on the city's east side in the 4300 block of East 143rd a little after 7:30PM Wednesday night.

Police arrested 32-year-old Harvey Gray - who holds the lease at the house where the shooting took place - early Thursday morning.

According to police, Gray and a man were inside the house when another man burst in the unlocked front door and tried to rob them at gunpoint.

At that time, the man with Gray brandished a handgun and exchanged gunfire between the other armed man.

Gray ran to the back of the house and later fled the scene. He's currently locked up pending the outcome of the investigation.
