CLEVELAND, Ohio – A second man has died in a double shooting Thursday night in Cleveland’s Stockyards neighborhood.

Cleveland police Sgt. Jennifer Ciaccia said the 23-year-old man died Friday at MetroHealth. He will be identified once his family is notified.

A 30-year-old man also died in the shooting that occurred about 10 p.m. on West 58th Street between Storer and Denison avenues.

Witnesses said the 30-year-old was running out of a home as a gunman was following him before he wa shot several times. Paramedics reportedly found him dead in the middle of the street.

Ciaccia said the 23-year-old man was struck once in the head while he and two other men were sitting in a car parked nearby. The other men drove him to MetroHealth.

Police haven’t said if the victims knew each other, or if they or the gunman lived at the home. Police said the gunman ran off after the shooting. No charges have been filed in the case.

In a separate incident, U.S. Marshals reportedly arrested a Cleveland man early Friday in connection with a fatal shooting that happened during a fight over a game of pool.

U.S. Marshals said the Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force arrested William Hanlan Jr. at a house on Chestnutdale Avenue near West 33rdStreet in Cleveland.

Court records show Hanlan, 39, is charged with aggravated murder in a March 3 shooting outside Mandy’s Sports Lounge on Pearl Road near Stickney Avenue in Cleveland.

Police said Hanlan allegedly shot Nicholas Russell, 24, in the chest during a fight. Russell died eight days later at MetroHealth.

Russell and three others were playing pool in the bar when a man and his girlfriend asked to join them. The groups began to argue, and a bouncer forced them outside, according to Russell’s cousin.

Court records say Hanlan allegedly pulled out a gun and shot Russell outside the bar. Russell had his hands up and begged for his life before he was shot, his cousin said.
