Cleveland police investigate 2 unrelated killings

Cleveland -  Cleveland police are investigating two murders, one that occurred Friday evening and another in the early hours of Saturday morning.

Friday evening around 7, shots were fired in the vicinity of East 93rd and St. Clair.

The bullets struck a 19-year-old man in the head, causing him to crash his car into a church building.

He was taken to University Hospitals, where he was pronounced dead.

Cleveland police say a 15-year-old and 17-year-old, passengers in the car, were injured.

There is no word of any arrests.

At around 4:30AM Saturday, a 48-year-old employee was working alone in the Kinsman Avenue Rally's Restaurant when another worker returned to get something he had left.

That's when a suspect rushed the door, and the two workers were ordered onto the floor.

A second suspect came into the restaurant, armed with a gun.

The suspects demanded the workers open the safe, but they weren't able to.

Then the 48-year-old employee began fighting the suspects, and was stabbed by one of them with a knife from the restaurant's kitchen.

The pair then fled.

The victim was taken to University Hospitals, where he was pronounced dead from head and chest wounds.

The Cleveland Police Homicide unit is asking anyone with information to call them at 216-623-5464.
