Cleveland police say shooting in Ohio City started with a fight between 2 men

CLEVELAND, Ohio --  Cleveland police are investigating the shooting of three people Monday night on W 25th and Lorain in Ohio City.

Police say two men and one woman are the victims of gunshot wounds.   Police say a preliminary investigation indicates the two men engaged in a fight, and one of the men got a gun from a car and came back and fired upon the man and woman.  The victims were taken to MetroHealth Medical Center.

Sources tell the FOX 8 I-Team the woman was grazed in the side of the head; one of the men was shot in the chest. The suspected shooter was shot in the face.

One person was arrested at the scene, according to sources.

A man named Darcell Jordan told FOX 8 News he was with one of the men and the woman before the shooting happened. He said he had left 20 minutes earlier to go home, and said they were all just hanging out.  "It was such a beautiful night. We were all just hanging out here, enjoying it." Jordan, who was understandably shaken, returned to the scene once he heard about the shooting and said he couldn't believe it.  He said the man and woman are both good people.

A witness who said he was having dinner at a nearby restaurant heard the gunshots. He called 911.  From what he said he witnessed, it appeared the exchange was between two men and the woman may have somehow got caught in the crossfire.
