One shot on Coventry Road in Cleveland Heights, chief says

CLEVELAND, Ohio — A male was shot Sunday night on Coventry Road, police said.

The shooting happened shortly before 9 p.m. on Coventry Road, north of Mayfield Road, Cleveland Heights Police Chief Annette Mecklenburg said.

Mecklenburg, who was at the scene along with at least nine other police cruisers, said she was unsure of the male’s age, identity or the extent of his injuries.

She said no one has been arrested and that officers were still gathering information from witnesses at the scene to see if anyone saw what led up to the shooting.

Officers combed the street looking for shell casings and other evidence, while others knocked on doors talking to neighbors.

Officers focused their search on the street lined with homes. The street was blocked off just past Mayfield Road as officers investigated.

Mecklenburg said she would release more information on Monday, once officers were further along in their investigation.
