CLEVELAND – A 69-year-old man was found dead inside his East 81st Street Cleveland home Saturday morning, the victim of a gunshot to the head.

The victim’s roommate heard gunshots at around 5:30 a.m., but didn’t see anyone doing the actual shooting and didn’t call police. When the roommate woke up at around 8 a.m. they found the victim, who was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Cuyahoga County medical examiner’s office will determine the final cause of the victim’s death. In the meantime, homicide detectives are investigating.
