The Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner’s Office on Thursday identified the victim as Devonte Johnson of Cleveland.
Police found him in a field in the 600 block of East 113th Street, near the St. Clair Avenue intersection, just before 4 p.m. Wednesday.
Officers used trauma kits to render aid until EMS responders arrived, but the teen was ultimately declared dead at the scene, police said.
His death is being investigated as a homicide. Investigators “canvassed the area for evidence and witnesses.” No arrests have been made.
Anyone with information about the shooting is urged to call homicide investigators at 216-623-5464. Anonymous tips can also be left with Crimestoppers by calling 216-25-CRIME (216-252-7463). A reward of up to $5,000 may be available.
Cleveland police and EMS on Wednesday initially identified Johnson as an 18-year-old man.
