CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - A-16 year-old juvenile is behind bars for a shooting death Parma police said he committed on Tuesday.

It happened around 3 p.m. in the afternoon Tuesday on South Park Boulevard in Parma.

Following tips, police and SWAT officers captured the youth hiding out at his mother’s house on Liggett Road in Parma.

Police said they found enough evidence to tie the 16-year-old to the murder of 17-year-old Lawrence Morgan.
