CLEVELAND — A Cleveland man has died days after he was shot in the head.

On April 30, police were called to the 16000 block of Lakeshore Boulevard on reports of a fight.

When police arrived, they saw a dark SUV drive away.

While there are conflicting reports, it appears there was some sort of altercation before shots were fired.

Mattayo Heard, 23, was life-flighted to MetroHealth Hospital on April 30 after being taken into Euclid Hospital suffering a gunshot wound to the head.

He was pronounced dead on May 5.

Police are investigating the case as a homicide.
