CLEVELAND — Cleveland police detectives are investigating a double homicide that happened Saturday morning on the city’s East Side.

It happened at a home in the 10300 block of Grandview Avenue in the city’s Woodland Hills neighborhood just before 5 a.m.

Authorities say officers responded to the scene after receiving reports of shots fired and a person shot.

When officers arrived, they found a 35-year-old man on the ground in the driveway. He was pronounced dead at the scene. He had been shot multiple times, police said.

Another man, a 38-year-old, was found shot inside the home. He was transported to a nearby hospital and later pronounced dead. Police also said that the 38-year-old was running an "after-hours operation" at the home.

A third victim, a 24-year-old man, showed up at Cleveland Clinic after sustaining a gunshot wound. He was later taken to University Hospitals for treatment where he remains confined, police said.

Cleveland police say a preliminary investigation indicates that there was a birthday party for the 35-year-old and another person at the home and between 30 to 50 people were in attendance.

According to police, the 35-year-old got into an argument with someone and was asked to leave. The man later went back to the party and possibly had a gun with him.

Witnesses at the scene told officers they later heard multiple gunshots.

“At this time, it is undetermined who was shooting, though it is believed there were multiple shooters,” police said.

Authorities said they recovered two handguns at the scene.

The names of the two men have not been released.

The matter remains under investigation.
