LAKEWOOD, Ohio — Police in Lakewood and Cleveland are investigating a series of carjackings allegedly committed by a 27-year-old man after the killing of a 21-year-old man in Cleveland.

Officers reportedly got a call about 9:30 a.m. Saturday of a possible carjacking at Emerald Necklace Marina near Detroit Avenue.

Officers reportedly arrived at the scene where Cleveland Metroparks Rangers were treating a woman with a gunshot wound to the leg.

The man involved reportedly took off from the marina in a 2015 Hyundai Sonata. Not long after, the car was found abandoned in the middle of Sloane Avenue near Edanola Avenue, according to the release.

The man reportedly found a 2017 Dodge Ram pickup truck in the area with the engine running and drove away in it. Police reportedly saw the truck east on Clifton Boulevard approaching Nicholson Avenue.

Moments later, the truck was found abandoned on the grass in front of the Marine Towers building on Edgewater Drive, according to the report.

The man then carjacked a 65-year-old woman and reportedly drove her 2011 Dodge Caliber through a closed garage door and through the parking lot.

About a minute later, Lakewood police reportedly boxed him in where he was taken into custody.

Lakewood Police have not released the suspect’s identity or announced if charges have been filed against him.

Meanwhile, Cleveland police have not released follow up reports on the initial shooting that killed the 21-year-old man which started the chain of events.

The gunman reportedly killed the man in Collinwood before committing the alleged carjackings.

Authorities reportedly found the man with a gunshot wound to his head in the lobby of an apartment building on East 156th Street, near Lakeshore Boulevard. He was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

The crimes remain under investigation.
