Williams said federal agencies were helping to find answers to the recent shootings in Cleveland that have left two children dead in recent weeks, as well as seven people shot and five of them dead just this past weekend.

Williams said arrest warrants have been issued for people connected to the shootings. Deputy Chief Ed Tomba showed a picture of 22-year-old Donnell "Nell" Lindsey, the man suspected of being involved in the murder of 3-year-old Major Howard

Tomba said all of the shooting cases seem to be separate and some of the victims may be connected to narcotics trafficking. 

When asked about Robert Rembert, Tomba said he was a man who was arrested for another crime in Cleveland and police plan to speak with him about Rembert's possible connection to the two people found dead on East 140th Street

The press conference concluded with Williams stating that the 10-year-old shot over the weekend is still at University Hospitals and police have no new information on his condition.
