CLEVELAND, Ohio (WJW) – The FOX 8 I-TEAM has learned from multiple sources that Cleveland police are questioning two more people about the deadly shooting last week of a detective and an informant.

Since Sunday night, investigators have picked up another adult and another juvenile.

He is being held under investigation for aggravated murder.

On Friday, police rounded up two juveniles and an adult for questioning about the case.

They were arrested on warrants for other crimes.
