CANTON: A 19-year-old Canton man is dead and a 16-year-old boy, whom police believe is a suspect in the shooting, has been hospitalized with life-threatening gunshot wounds.
Michael A. Sibert Jr. was pronounced dead at the scene in the 600 block of Alan Page Drive Southeast shortly after 6 p.m. Friday. The juvenile suspect, believed to be from Cleveland, was transported to a Cleveland hospital.
Authorities are looking for two males, also believed to be Cleveland residents, who fled the scene. No descriptions were released.
On Monday, detectives determined that the unidentified teen shot Sibert twice during a robbery attempt at his residence. They say Sibert was able to return fire, shooting the juvenile in the face.
Police believe one of the teen’s two accomplices also might have been shot during the incident.
