A 55-year-old man was shot in the lower jaw at East 105th Street and Carnegie Avenue, police reported. He was taken to a hospital by a private vehicle.

A University Circle police cruiser was spotted by a FOX 8 News crew near the scene just after 1 p.m. Wednesday, May 10, as an officer examined what appeared to be a car struck by bullet fire.

Michelle Billow told FOX 8 News she was in her vehicle, waiting in the turning lane at stop light.

“Here come two cars in their lane, shooting at each other. They slammed off the truck that was turning and off of my car and they continued,” she said. “Someone ended up getting shot. It was a pretty crazy day. … I am still scared.”

John Hay Academic Campus is part of the Cleveland Metropolitan School District.
