80-year-old Cleveland man arrested for killing neighbor, police say

CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Johnny Hogue, 80, was arrested for the fatal shooting of his 68-year-old neighbor Monday evening, and he’s been charged with aggravated murder.

Cleveland police said the suspect was arguing with another neighbor in the 9300 block of Gorman Avenue about their dogs.

Barbara Rogers apparently tried to intervene and Hogue shot her multiple times, police said.

When officers arrived on the scene, Rogers was found down on the front lawn.

EMS transported her to MetroHealth hospital, where she died from her injuries.

After the homicide, police said the suspect walked back into his house.

He was taken into custody shortly afterwards.

Multiple neighbors told 19 News Reporter Kelly Kennedy this man had an ongoing dispute with the victim over his dogs and his dogs had recently attacked her.
