CLEVELAND — Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson's grandson, Frank Q. Jackson, died from multiple gunshot wounds, according to preliminary autopsy findings.

Jackson, 24, was shot and killed Sunday evening in the area of Sidaway Avenue and East 70th Street around 9:10 p.m.

According to the medical examiner's preliminary findings, Jackson was found on the ground lying face up with multiple gunshot wounds to his head, right arm, and back.

Mayor Jackson identified the body of his grandson, documents indicated.

The caliber of the shell casings was not specified in the report. The medical examiner said the dirt bike was lying near Jackson's body.

No weapons were found at the scene, authorities said.
