OLMSTED FALLS, Ohio — The Olmsted Falls Police Department, along with the US Marshals, have released the name and photos of a man wanted in connection to homicide that occurred in Olmsted Falls Wednesday night.

A warrant has been issued for the arrest of Antoine M. Pollard, 23, who is believed to be somewhere near Cleveland's West Side, specifically Lakeview Terrace Estates on West 28th Street in Cleveland, according to a release from the Olmsted Falls Police Department.

Pollard is wanted in connection to a shooting that killed a 26-year-old man at a condominium on Lake of the Falls Boulevard in Olmsted Falls.

The 26-year-old man was found dead with multiple gunshot wounds to the torso, according to Chief of Police Odis Rogers. A neighbor who didn't want to be identified told News 5 that she heard a woman yelling, "Get out, get out," and then heard a scream, followed by what sounded like someone banging on metal last night. She now believes she heard gunshots.

While investigating the scene, investigators found over 40 pieces of evidence, but police wouldn't say if the murder weapon was among that evidence.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force at 1-866-492-6833.
