CLEVELAND, Ohio — A 29-year-old Cleveland man was shot and killed at a West Side home Sunday night in an armed home invasion during a marijuana deal.

Police spokeswoman Sgt. Jennifer Ciaccia said the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner’s Office identified the victim as James Dowell, who suffered several gunshot wounds.

The shooting reportedly occurred about 11:30 p.m. at a home on West 52ndStreet between Kouba and Field avenues in the Stockyards neighborhood.

Ciaccia said Dowell and a woman were home alone when a boy came to the house to buy marijuana from Dowell. At about the same time, two armed males reportedly stormed through the back door, police said.

Ciaccia said the armed men reportedly tried to use duct tape to bind Dowell, but a fight broke out and one of them shot Dowell. The woman reportedly told police that she hid during the confrontation.

Ciaccia said Dowell was found bleeding on the kitchen floor and pronounced him dead at the scene. No suspects were publicly identified and no charges have been filed. Homicide detectives are investigating.

Meanwhile, a reward is being offered for information that leads to the arrest of a Cleveland man wanted in connection with a fatal shooting outside of a downtown bar.

The U.S. Marshals on Monday named Jewan Kyle, 29, as “Fugitive of the Week” in connection with the shooting death of 31-year-old Cedric Carter on Nov. 29.

An aggravated murder warrant was issued for Kyle’s arrest on Dec. 13.

The shooting reportedly occurred about 2 a.m. outside the Union Club on St. Clair Avenue at East 25th Street.

Kyle and Carter reportedly argued in the bar before the argument spilled outside. Kyle allegedly flashed a gun and shot Carter in the head before running away.

U.S. Marshals said Kyle should be considered armed and dangerous, and his last known address was at 7511 Garden Valley in Cleveland.
