CLEVELAND, Ohio – A news report states a 26-year-old man and his girlfriend were each shot in the same Cleveland neighborhood on different days.

Cleveland police reports say the man was shot four times in the legs and buttocks on Monday, and his 18-year-old girlfriend was shot in the arm on Wednesday.

Officers are investigating whether the two shootings are related.

Police said the man was reportedly shot about 8:30 p.m. Monday near his girlfriend’s house on Beckman Avenue near East 86th Street in the Fairfax neighborhood.

He reportedly told police that he left the home and walked outside to his Dodge Ram when a gunman approached him from behind and ordered him not to move.

The gunman reportedly fired off several shots as the man tried to run away. The victim reportedly hopped into his truck and drove away.

The girlfriend later told police she was upstairs during the shooting and heard the gunfire. The man was later found at West 25th Street and Meyer Avenue and was taken to MetroHealth for treatment.

At the hospital, the boyfriend reportedly told police that he believed he was set up by his girlfriend. Police said the man was expected to fully recover from his injuries.

Two days later, the man’s girlfriend was reportedly shot at about 9:45 p.m. near an alley close to her Beckman Avenue home.

A man wearing a ski mask and black clothing approached the woman as she and her friend walked down the street. The man reportedly fired off at least five gunshots before running off toward East 84th Street.

The girlfriend was treated at University Hospitals. The friend later told investigators that she believed the shootings were related.

The friend reportedly acknowledged that the boyfriend believed his girlfriend set him up in the previous shooting, and that he may have recruited someone to target his girlfriend.

Authorities haven’t announced any arrests.
