Man shot in the head in Cleveland

Man shot in the head in Cleveland

A driver calls 911 after seeing a man laying on the ground and bleeding from the head.

Ebriahem Abdul-Hqq was walking with two other men at East Boulevard and St. Clair around four a-m Monday, when he was shot.

His two friends say a green Pontiac had driven by and asked if they were '76 Boys'.

They said they were not, and the driver then said he was from 'Hough-Harlem'.

The Pontiac drove away, but came back minutes later and the passenger fired several shots out the window.

The two friends ran and hid in a backyard.

They did not know Abdul-Hqq had been hit, until they returned to the scene.

The driver that called 911 just happened to be driving in the area.

Abdul-Hqq was rushed to Metro for treatment.

The suspect remains on the loose. He is described as a thin, very light-skinned black male with blond hair.
