Suspects arrested in connection with shooting death of high school student
CLEVELAND, Ohio– Two suspects wanted in connection with the shooting death of a high school student at a gas station have been arrested.
FOX 8’s Jack Shea says Dontez Long and Alonzo Patterson were taken into custody just a short time ago on East 90th Street after a woman saw them and called police.
The victim, Diamond Russell, was a senior at Ginn Academy. Ted Ginn Sr., Glenville High School’s football coach, confirmed to Fox 8’s Jack Shea that Russell is his nephew.
Russell was a football player set to graduate from high school on Sunday.
Police say the shooting happened around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday outside the Shell station at Euclid and Superior avenues.
Gas station workers say Russell was shot when a man stepped out of a bus stop and fired at least six shots at him.
