Teenager Killed Saturday On City's East Side

Cleveland, OH - A fifteen-year-old boy, Arthur C. Buford, was fatally shot in the chest Saturday night while allegedly trying to rob a 25-year-old male on E.134th and Kinsman.

Saturday evening around 8:30 p.m. , two males, one of which was Buford, were allegedly trolling down the road when they saw another male and approached him with a gun and attempted to rob him. The 25-year-old then produced his own gun and fired a small caliber revolver, striking Buford in the chest.

Buford stumbled down the road until EMS met up with him and transported him to a local hospital where he would later expire at 9:18 p.m.

The 25-year-old claims he ran home and called police, then surrendered himself and the handgun to authorities.

The male shooter is in custody and a prosecuter will decide if his above story is true.
