Officers responded to the 5700 block of S. Park Blvd. around 3 p.m. after 911 dispatchers received multiple calls for shots fired.

When officers arrived on the scene, they found Morgan suffering from a gunshot wound.

Morgan was transported to MetroHealth Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

On June 22, Parma police and SWAT team members arrested the 16-year-old suspect at a home in the 3100 block of Liggett Drive after a stand-off.

He is charged with murder, felonious assault and improper discharge over a roadway.

According to police, the two juveniles did know one another and it was not a random shooting.
