CLEVELAND - One man is dead and another suffered multiple gunshot wounds while out on a shopping trip on Saturday afternoon.

Around 2 p.m., both victims were shopping at a clothing store called City Blue on the city's eastside. After leaving the store, they began to walk eastbound across East 116th Street towards a parking lot.

Witnesses say a vehicle traveling east slowed down in front of the store. Someone inside the car began to fire shots at the two men walking.

The two men tried to run away before both were struck by bullets.

Both men were taken by EMS to University Hospital, where one of the men died.

The second victim was treated for gunshot wounds to his back and leg.

No arrests were reported in the case, and the homicide investigation remains open.
