CLEVELAND - Cleveland Police have released more details regarding Thursday's shooting at an apartment building on Cleveland's east side.

Two of the victims have been identified: 37-year-old Deja Hardy and 37-year-old Ronwell Horne. Authorities are not releasing the name of a third victim, a nine-year-old girl. All three are in stable condition.
