AKRON -- Police are asking the public's help in locating a man they believe is responsible in a Thursday shooting.

Authorities say 23-year-old Cleophus Thompson Jr. of Akron is wanted for allegedly shooting a man in the right hand and left shoulder.

The incident happened shortly after 5 p.m. when the 24-year-old victim was driving near the intersection of Hammel and Corice streets.

After he had been shot, the victim drove to a store at Lovers Lane and Inman Street where he notified police and reported the gunfire followed an argument that happened earlier in the day.
