CLEVELAND — A man was killed and a woman was critically injured after a shootout at a Cleveland intersection Friday.

At approximately 2:22 a.m., officers responded to the 12000 block of Corlett Avenue for a male and female shot.

Officers located both victims outside of a vehicle that had crashed.

The 24-year-old male victim, who later died at the hospital, had gunshot wounds to his neck, face and chest.

The 20-year-old female victim had a gunshot wound to the abdomen. She was transported in critical condition. Police did not give an updated condition on the female victim.

Less than a minute later, an SUV came speeding by the original crime scene. Two women inside were hysterical as they told officers people were shooting at them while they were driving.

The car was hit by gunfire and was leaking gas. Neither woman was injured.

No arrests have been made in the fatal shooting.
