CLEVELAND — Cleveland police are investigating a fatal shooting on a busy commercial street near Cleveland's Clark-Fulton neighborhood.

The shooting happened Wednesday at around 4:45 p.m. in the 5000 block of Clark Avenue.

Police were flagged down at West 51st and Clark streets for a man who was shot. A man was located in the street with multiple gunshot wounds. A CMSD officer performed first aid until EMS arrived. He was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

The medical examiner's office identified the victim as 30-year-old Antonio Parra.

On scene, police learned that Parra was standing outside of the First Class Barber Shop, when he was approached by two men in black hoodies. The two men shot Parra multiple times before running from the scene. They fled in a blue vehicle, according to police.

One adult male was identified as the shooter at the scene by detectives and was booked into the Cuyahoga County Jail.

Detectives later learned that the owner of the vehicle in question arrived on East 38th Street, but without the actual vehicle.

The investigation into the Clark Avenue homicide led authorities to the home of Mayor Frank Jackson's home late Wednesday night, which is also located on East 38th Street.

One teen was taken from East 38th Street for questioning, but was later released to a parent, according to police.

Police said one vehicle was towed from the Clark Avenue shooting scene. A second vehicle was towed from East 38th Street.
