CLEVELAND -  Cleveland police have released a number of photos of the man suspected of a shooting  near a Public Square restaurant last month.

The shooting occurred late on Aug. 1 in the area of Ontario and Prospect streets near Public Square.

Witnesses that evening reported a young male had been involved in a large street fight in that area when he pulled a gun, firing into the air. He then fired a second shot that hit his 18-year-old victim.

Officers chased the suspect, but were unable to locate him at the time. However, surveillance videos were able to capture images of the suspect.

Anyone with information on this is asked to contact Cleveland Police and/or third district detectives.
