Three suspects arrested in death of CSU professor

(Cleveland) - Three men have been charged with aggravated murder in the fatal shooting of a college professor struck by a stray bullet in Cleveland during a gunfire exchange between men in two cars.

Records show 61-year-old David Wilder, of Cleveland was shot while driving his car near the gunfire. 

Wilder was an adjunct arts professor at Cleveland State University and John Carroll University.

Eighteen-year-old Kassius Williams, 25-year-old Terrell Gray and 26-year-old Charles Walker are charged in Wilder's death.

No one has been charged in the death of 15-year-old Tywan Johnson, of Cleveland. 

Police say Johnson was in the other car targeted Saturday by the suspects in Wilder's death.

The three men made brief court appearances Monday. 

Police are checking to see if it's related to another fatal shooting that took the lives of a 17 year old and 19 year old, that shooting happened near East 75th and Kinsman, as the occupants of two cars began firing at each other. 

Police Chief Calvin Williams is urging the public to step forward with any information.
