One man has been arrested and arrest warrants are out for another man in connection with the death of a man on July 5. 

Warrants were issued on Monday for Kelvin Clark Jr. and Devonte Brown. According to the Cleveland Municipal Court, both men were charged with aggravated murder.

Clark Jr. was arrested and booked into county jail on Tuesday at 9 p.m., according to county authorities.

According to police, three men were shot in the 9500 block of Marah Avenue. One of the men, 25-year-old Ravon Edwards, died at the scene, and another was taken to University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center for a gunshot wound to the hip. A third victim suffered a gunshot wound to the leg.

According to Clark's warrant, he and Brown got into a verbal and physical fight with Edwards. Both men pulled handguns and shot and killed Edwards, according to their warrants. Witnesses confirmed these details, the warrants said.

Officers said a large group was setting off fireworks when shots were fired in the middle of the street.

Edwards' death was part of five homicides and four shootings that happened in Cleveland during a 48-hour period around the Fourth of July.

CORRECTION: A mugshot previously sent to News 5 Cleveland by Cuyahoga County officials misidentified the subject as Kelvin Clark, Jr. The correct mugshot now appears in this story.
