Associated Press

CLEVELAND: Cleveland police said they have a possible location for the gunman suspected of fatally shooting a 5-year-old girl and injuring her mother while they sat in a vehicle Sunday.

SWAT team negotiators are in a residential area of Cleveland.

Authorities said the shooting happened at about 11 p.m. Sunday on the city’s west side. They said a man in a green SUV pulled up to the vehicle, got out and opened fire, striking the two victims. He then fled.

The girl was killed. Her 33-year-old mother was in fair condition Monday at MetroHealth Medical Center.

Police said the vehicle was traced to one address, and they were led from there to another address. That’s where they went next.

No arrests have been made.
