CLEVELAND, Ohio – Authorities said a 19-year-old was shot in the chest after an SUV blocked him while he was driving on State Road in Cleveland.

No arrests have been made in the shooting that occurred about 11:30 p.m. Tuesday on State Road between Bader and Burger avenues in tOld Brooklyn neighborhood, police reports say.

The man reportedly told police he was driving southbound when an SUV pulled up next to him, then in front of his car. The SUV reportedly stopped, then reversed to the point where it lightly hit the man’s car, blocking him in.

Police said a man jumped out of the SUV’s backseat and fired several shots at the car, including one that hit the 19-year-old man in the chest.

The victim reportedly got out of his car, yelled for help and ran down Bader Avenue, where he collapsed.

Police said a woman who lives in the neighborhood heard the man’s calls for help and found him collapsed on a porch.

Police said officers found him and reported his condition was “deteriorating” rapidly. The officers reportedly got permission to bypass waiting for an ambulance and drive him to MetroHealth for treatment.

In a separate incident, police said a man was taken to the hospital with a wound to the stomach late Tuesday night after a shooting on the city’s West Side.

Police spokesman Det. Reginald Lanton said the shooting reportedly occurred on the 3500 block of Bader Avenue, just north of the State Road exit from Interstate 480 in the Old Brooklyn neighborhood.

Lanton said the victim’s age was unknown. He was taken to MetroHealth Medical Center but his condition was not released.

Police did not release a motive for the shooting, which remains under investigation, or say if there are suspects.
