Cleveland police are investigating a homicide that took place Friday evening outside a liquor store on Central Avenue and East 74th Street.

Cleveland EMS transported Redwine to the hospital at around 7 p.m. where he later died. 

The suspect in the shooting has not been identified.

This case is now under investigation. Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to contact the homicide unit at (216) 623-5464.
