CLEVELAND – Three men told police that they were shot while riding in their car on Martin Luther King Boulevard late Friday evening.
Police were called to MetroHealth Medical Center where the victims had been driven by the driver of their vehicle. They told police that they left the Harvard Wine Bar and were stopped at the intersection of East 117th and Martin Luther King Boulevards when a grey Dodge Charger with tinted windows pulled up next to them. Someone in the Charger began shooting at them, which shattered the cars’ windows, and they drove off and went directly to the hospital.

The third victim, Qounte Eggleton, 25, of Maple Heights suffered lacerations to the face from the broken windows. The car’s driver, London Upshaw, 20, of Maple Heights, wasn’t injured.
Officers went back to the area of the shooting, but weren’t able to find any broken glass or shell casings.
