Man shot outside Cleveland elementary school

CLEVELAND, Ohio — A 30-year-old man was shot Thursday outside a Cleveland elementary school, police said.

The shooting happened about 6 p.m. in the playground behind Willow Elementary School, police reports say. No arrests have been made.

The man told police he was hanging out at the playground when a black BMW SUV drove up, police reports say.

The driver got out, never said a word and fired about six gunshots at him, police reports say. He was shot once in the left arm and once in the left leg, according to police.

A man who lives nearby heard the gunfire, saw the man was shot and drove him to MetroHealth, according to police reports. 

Officers reported finding blood splattered on the basketball court and fired bullet casings near Finn Avenue.
