CLEVELAND — Cleveland police are looking for two suspects involved in the deadly shooting of a 15-year-old boy at East 156th Street and Lakeshore Boulevard.

The boy was taken to University Hospitals where he was later pronounced dead. His name has not yet been released.

Police say a 16-year-old boy, who was a passenger in the vehicle at the time of the shooting, was also hurt during the incident. He was taken to the hospital by a private vehicle with a gunshot wound to the leg.
