WARRENSVILLE HEIGHTS, OH (WOIO) - City officials in Warrensville Heights held a news conference Friday afternoon to discuss the city's latest rash of violence. 

In fact, the past few days in both Warrensville Heights and Maple Heights have been deadly. First, a murder in Maple Heights about 10 days ago, then a triple murder at the Chalk Linez barber shop on Harvard, Thursday night. That shooting could be related to the one in Maple Heights.

The Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner identified the victims as Walter Lee Barfield, 23, William Gonzalez, 32, and Brandon White, 31. The men are described as friends, and may have known the shooter. Gonzalez was the owner.

During Friday's press conference, Police Chief Wesley Haynes said the department believes the shooting stemmed from a prior incident.

An intriguing part of the story is that Gonzalez may have known the victim from the bar shooting in Maple Heights last weekend. He is Orlando Stevens, and had a barber connection in that he was a student at Flawless Barber Academy near Shaker Heights. 

Instagram shows several connections, as well as a strong connection to high profile athletes. Several Cleveland Cavaliers are pictured getting haircuts, and some of the pictures appear to have been taken at the Cavs practice facility. 

The shooting happened around 7:45 p.m. Thursday and came to police in a 911 call.

DISPATCHER: This is 911. What's your emergency. What's going on?

CALLER: (screams) My husband just got shot. Someone just opened fire.

CALLER: Can y'all please hurry up?

Others were injured during the incident, but officials report are recovering in stable condition. Barfield was pronounced dead at the scene. Gonzalez and White died at South Pointe Hospital.

On Friday, Darlece Gonzalez returned to the place where she had witnessed the murder, still covered in her husband's blood.

"I can still see the blood. I can still feel, see how the smoke coming out of his chest. He didn't deserve it. He didn't deserve it at all," she said.

Her message to the public is help the police.

"I just want somebody to speak up, please. It's not right," said Gonzalez.

So far there are no arrests, but Chief Haynes says they are pursuing leads. Anyone with more information is urged to call police at 216-581-1234.
