Man fatally shot in gas station parking lot in Cleveland’s Collinwood-Nottingham neighborhood

CLEVELAND, Ohio — A 29-year-old man was fatally shot in the head early Tuesday in the city’s Collinwood-Nottingham neighborhood.

The shooting happened about 1 a.m. in the parking lot of the Marathon Gas station on St. Clair Avenue and East 140th, police said.

The man and another man argued in the parking lot, police said. The other man pulled out a gun and shot the 29-year-old man in the head.  

He was taken to University Hospitals where he died.

The Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner will release the man’s name once his family has been notified.

It’s the sixth homicide in seven days in Cleveland, including one on Sunday about a half-mile north of Tuesday’s shooting.

In that case, Mario King, 34, was fatally shot in the doorway of Satan’s Sidekicks Motorcycle Club on East 140th Street in Collinwood.

The Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner ruled King died of multiple gunshot wounds to the head, neck and arms. No arrests have been made in that case.
