CLEVELAND-- City of Cleveland officials gave an update Monday afternoon on recent violence in the city, most recently this weekend.

Cleveland police were called to a home on East 140th Street at 9:40 p.m. Saturday night after the bodies of two people were discovered there. A man was arrested and a vehicle apprehended on Monday that was wanted in connection with the crime. Deputy Chief Edward Tomba said it may have been a family issue.

Also on Saturday, near 108th and Shaker Boulevard, a 10-year-old was shot and transported to Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital; an adult was shot and killed at the same location. At Monday's press conference, police said the child is still in the hospital.

Around the same time on Robertson Ave., one person was killed and police are investigating it as a homicide.

Police also talked about the drive-by shooting that killed Major Howard, 3, on September 15 while he was sitting in a car. They are looking for Donnell Lindsey in connection with that crime.

Ramon Burnett, 5, was killed on September 4 in a drive-by shooting while playing in his front yard. Two people were indicted in connection with his death.

At the press conference, the mayor and police were asked about money coming to them from the Justice Department. Mayor Jackson said he could not comment since he just recently found out about it. Cleveland Police Chief Calvin Williams said until they see the federal dollars, it's hard to see where they would like them to go.
