CLEVELAND — A 24-year-old man was arrested in connection with the March shooting death of a 15-year-old boy in Cleveland, according to the Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force (NOVFT).

Authorities issued a warrant for Aaren Washington, 24, for a homicide that occurred in the area of Woodland Avenue on March 30.

Washington is suspected of shooting 15-year-old Amir Bradley several times, including in the chest. Amir was transported to a nearby hospital where he later died.
