CLEVELAND — Cleveland police are investigating three separate homicides that occurred Saturday between 3 a.m. and 8 p.m.

3:33 a.m.
The first homicide occurred in the 12300 block of Parkhill Avenue on the southeast side of the city. Officers were called to the scene to assist EMS with a suspicious death they had responded to.

Once on scene, officers learned that a 45-year-old man has been found unresponsive in a vehicle. The man was pronounced dead by EMS on the scene and the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner's Office was called to the scene, where they found a gunshot wound to the man's body.

The preliminary investigation indicates that the man was in the driveway of his residence when a group of unknown males exited a vehicle and approached the man before running back to their vehicle and fleeing the scene.

The second homicide occurred in the area of East 141st Street and St. Clair Avenue in Cleveland's South-Collinwood neighborhood. Officers were called to the scene in response to a report of shots fired.

EMS transported the man to University Hospitals where he was later pronounced dead.

Police said that a 43-year-old man later arrived at Euclid Hospital with a gunshot wound to his arm and was also involved in the shooting.

The preliminary investigation indicates that the 40-year-old man who was killed and the 43-year-old man who was injured were both in a parked car in the 900 block of East 141st Street when an unknown man walked up to the passenger's side of the car and opened fire, striking the men.

7:56 p.m.
The third homicide occurred in the 10600 block of Amor Avenue in the city's Glenville neighborhood. Officers were called to the scene after receiving a report of a man down and bleeding on the sidewalk.
