Cleveland Police are investigating a homicide after a man's body was discovered in a silver minivan in the area of East 131st Street and Edgewood Avenue near a church.
A passerby saw the victim slumped over inside the van just before 8 a.m. and called for help. EMS responded and called for police after they determined the victim was deceased and had suffered a gunshot wound to the head.
This isn't the first homicide on Edgewood, there was another one about four years ago in just about the same spot. The victim then was a 19-year-old. Four years later, the similar case remains unsolved.
"His name was Andre Bowers. I got a call he was dead. He got shot," Bowers' uncle, Willie Callahan recalled.
"I stay down this way so it bothers me," said neighbor Charley Lampkin.
