CLEVELAND, Ohio — Police said 19-year-old was killed in a Friday night shooting in the city’s Glenville neighborhood.

The man, who was shot in the head just before 7 p.m., was in a late model Toyota Corolla that crashed into the side of New Bethel Baptist Church at the corner of East 93rd Street and St. Clair Avenue, police said.

A 17-year old and 15-year-old, both males, also sustained injuries in the crash.  They were taken to University Hospitals for treatment.

The shooting victim was pronounced dead at University Hospitals. Authorities said homicide detectives are currently investigating the shooting.

In a separate incident Friday, a 30-year-old Cleveland man was shot to death in the parking lot of Burlington Coat Factory in the Steelyard Commons shopping center.

Spokesman Chris Harris confirmed that the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner’s Office has identified the man as Timothy Settles.

Cleveland police spokeswoman Sgt. Jennifer Ciaccia said the shooting happened shortly before 3 p.m. Friday on Steelyard Drive. Police said Settles suffered a gunshot wound to the head.

Officers reportedly found Settles in the driver’s seat of a Chevy Equinox. He was pronounced at the scene by Cleveland EMS, police said.

No arrests have been made nor suspects identified. Anyone with information is asked to call investigators at 216-623-5464.

Meanwhile, a 68-year-old man remained hospitalized Friday after he was shot Thursday night during an attempted carjacking outside his home in the Detroit-Shoreway neighborhood.

The victim reportedly told police that he picked up food from Rally’s and returned to his home on Lorain Avenue near West 51st Street.

The man parked his Lincoln Town Car outside and sat in the locked car as he ate his dinner. Once he was done eating, he reportedly watched a video on his phone.

Two men then approached the Lincoln on its passenger side. One man reportedly yelled at the victim and threatened to shoot him unless he unlocked the car.

The victim said that both men reportedly shot at him when he lifted his hand up and turned toward them. He said he watched as both shooters ran west on Lorain Avenue. Police haven’t publicly identified any suspects in the incident.
