CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Cleveland Police confirmed a homicide investigation is underway after a 46-year-old man was found dead in his car with multiple gunshot wounds on Sunday.
Sgt. Jennifer Ciaccia said officers were sent to the 3030 block of West 46th Street for shots fired about 10 minutes after midnight.
When officers arrived, they found the man with multiple gunshot wounds in the driver’s seat of his Ford Escape, Sgt. Ciaccia said.
Officers tried to revive him until EMS arrived, but he was later pronounced dead at the scene, according to Sgt. Ciaccia.
19 News spotted several members of the Cleveland Police Crime Scene Unit back on scene late Sunday afternoon. We’ve learned that a bullet from the shooting also hit a neighboring home. No one in that home was hurt. But officers did want to recover the evidence as part of the murder investigation.
Dale Carney who has lived in the neighborhood for more than 22 years says he was shocked to see police in the area, and even more surprised to hear about the murder. “Yes in this neighborhood. I’m very surprised because we haven’t see anything like this happen in about 12 years.”
Members of the Homicide Unit are investigating the shooting.
Sgt. Ciaccia said no arrests have been made, but multiple unknown males are the suspects.
