CLEVELAND HEIGHTS, Ohio (WOIO) - Cleveland Heights police confirmed a 13-year-old boy visiting from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, was shot and killed while standing inside a home in the 800 block of Woodview Road Monday evening.

According to police, Londan Hill was in the kitchen when two shots were fired into the back of the home.

Chief Annette Mecklenburg said it appears the shots came from a backyard a few houses away.

Police are considering every possibility regarding the origin of the gunshots, including that someone in the home may have been targeted or that it was gunfire intended for another target that tragically entered the home and killed the 13-year-old boy.

Police body cam video shows officers through the early stage of the investigation, making the determination that the shots came from outside the home and that the trajectory of the shots more than likely indicated that they came from down the street.

Police said that at this point, they do not have any suspects.

Hill and his mother were visiting from Wisconsin and staying with family members on Woodview Road.
