CLEVELAND — Police are investigating the shooting death of a 24-year-old man at a store on Lee Road Friday evening.

Police said the shooting happened at around 6:20 p.m. at a liquor store in the 4000 block of Lee Road.

The 24-year-old man, identified by the medical examiner as Kevin Boyd, was at the store in line trying to pay for items when two males and a female walked into the store.

Police said the victim and one of the males became involved in a verbal argument, which turned into a physical fight. At one point, Boyd was shot and the three people left the store.

Boyd was taken to University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

A day later, members of the Cleveland Police Department’s Gang Impact Unit located and arrested the suspected shooter in Independence. The shooter’s identity has not yet been released.

The shooting remains under investigation.
