CLEVELAND — Another brutal weekend in the city of Cleveland has left three people dead and six others hurt as a result of multiple shootings.

The violence began early Friday morning, when a 44-year-old man was found shot in the head within the 3000 block of East 123rd Street following an apparent robbery just after 6:30 a.m.. The victim, identified by the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner as Demond Donerson of Skaker Heights, died from his injuries at University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center.

No arrests have been, but police are currently searching for two suspects — one male and one female. Their names are not known at this time.

Roughly six hours later, a 23-year-old man was found dead on the 4000 block of Pearl Road under a bridge near the railroad tracks. A witness told investigators they had heard gunshots in the area, and authorities claim to have found shell casings in the area. The victim has been identified as Charles Eggers, of Cleveland.

Then on Sunday, at roughly 3 a.m., a 20-year-old man was shot in the hip inside a home on the 6900 block of Kinsman Road, with others on scene telling officials the gunfire came from outside.
