A 27-year-old Cleveland business owner was shot and killed during a robbery in the early hours of Saturday morning.

Officers responded to the scene at Priceless Consignment Boutique located at 14100 Saint Clair Ave. around 4 a.m.

Police say the store owner's 55-year-old uncle was also at the store helping during the robbery. He suffered chest pains and was treated and released from Cleveland Clinic.

Police believe three suspects entered the store through the unlocked front door and began shooting.

Police do not know the identities of the suspects at this time, and it is unknown if anything was stolen.

The store owner was taken to University Hospitals where he was pronounced dead.

It was another violent weekend in Cleveland. Three people were shot in the face; two of them died. A dead body was found burning in a yard.
