August 4, 2019

CLEVELAND (AP) — Police say someone has fatally shot and robbed a man who was riding a bicycle in Cleveland.

Cleveland police say the shooting happened about 2:40 p.m. Saturday near an intersection. Officers say they found the 19-year-old man lying on a sidewalk with multiple gunshot wounds.

Paramedics took the man to a hospital, where he died. His name wasn’t immediately released Sunday.

Investigators at the shooting scene say the man riding a bicycle apparently was approached another man who pulled out a gun and shot the bicyclist.

Police say the armed man then took items from the man on the bicycle before leaving the scene.

No suspect information has been released. Authorities say the investigation is continuing.
