CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Cleveland Councilman Zack Reed says the city marked its 100th homicide of the year overnight.
It happened at about 12:30 a.m. at an apartment in the 10600 block of Woodland Avenue.
Cleveland police say preliminary information reveals that the 30-year-old male victim and a suspect were arguing. The victim told the suspect to leave his apartment, and the suspect then shot the victim.
The suspect ran away but was arrested a short time later.
Reed says that as of this time last year, there had been 78 homicides in the city of Cleveland.
"We need to stop the violence," Reed told Fox 8's Peggy Gallek. "I have said we need 200 new police officers, better technology for the safety division...and $1 million for overtime. These are solutions."
Among the most recent murders have been those of three children.
Five-year-old Ramon Burnett was killed Sept. 4; three-year-old Major Howard was killed Sept. 15; and 5-month-old Aavielle Wakefield was killed Oct. 1.
