Jan. 14 (News) — Three people are dead and two are seriously injured after an apparent gun battle in Cleveland, authorities said Saturday.
Local reports indicate the shooting occurred just before 8 p.m. Friday at an apartment building in the Brooklyn Center neighborhood of Cleveland.
A man, woman and teenager were killed in the shooting while a male suspect was taken into custody, Cleveland Police spokeswoman Jennifer Ciacci told The Plain Dealer.
Preliminary investigations suggest the shooting was related to a domestic dispute, she said.
A man and a young girl who were shot in the incident are being treated at a Cleveland hospital, authorities said.
“This has been a painful week as we confront the devastation caused by another horrific act of gun violence in our city,” Cleveland Mayor Justin Bibb said in a statement issued to local media. “Tonight’s incident is particularly horrific as it took place at home, a place where a family should feel safe and secure,” he added.
