Cleveland Police are investigating after a man was shot and killed at Kerruish Park on Tuesday night, around 7 p.m.

Investigators are saying that Andre Johnson was sitting inside his car when the suspect approached him. They were arguing when the suspect shot Johnson several times and fled the area. 

Police and EMS arrived and the 45-year old was pronounced dead. 

The Homicide Unit is investigating. 

Police said the suspect is described as a medium complexion black man, who drove away in a rusty SUV or pick-up truck. Anyone with information is asked to call police at (216) 623-5464. 

Back in August, Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson held his annual "Night Out Against Crime" in the same park.

Johnson is the city's 80th homicide of the year.
