CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

The victim in Sunday afternoon's shooting was identified as 21-year-old Elante D. Johnson of Cleveland.

Police say the shooting was reported at approximately 3:20 P.M. on Sunday at the Speedy gas station located in the 6000 block of Morton Avenue.

The victim was found with several gunshot wounds. He was taken to an area hospital where he later died, according to officials with Cleveland EMS.

The gas station's surveillance video shows the victim standing near the front of the store. He starts walking towards the street, but then begins running when he sees the shooter. 

Neighbors who heard the gunfire reacted to what had happened.

“You see all that, that's crazy. Broad daylight on a Sunday. Insanity,” said Khalid Samad. “It's Palm Sunday, need a cease fire with these nuts."

During the investigation, evidence markers were scattered all over the ground at the gas station.

Police have not reported any arrests in the shooting.
