AKRON, Ohio – Authorities say a 26-year-old man is dead and a 20-year-old man is seriously wounded after an unidentified person fired shots into their vehicle on Saturday afternoon.

Police said the shooting reportedly occurred just after 2:30 p.m. on Manchester Road near Longview Avenue in Akron’s Lane-Wooster neighborhood.

Police responded to the shooting and found the two men. Police said the 26-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene and the 20-year-old man was taken to a local hospital in serious condition.

Police said the men were stopped in a vehicle when a car drove up next to them. A person reportedly got out of the car and fired shots into the victims’ vehicle. The shooter left the scene. Police said the car is described as a small silver Ford.

In an unrelated incident, police said an Akron teen accidentally shot himself in the leg while trying to pull a gun on two marijuana dealers Thursday in the city’s Summit Lake neighborhood.

Amir Peak, 18, was then shot in the legs several times by one of the suspected dealers just before midnight on Russell Avenue near Oberlin Street, police said.

Peak reportedly suffered non-life-threatening injuries in the incident. He is charged with aggravated robbery and felonious assault in the incident, police said.

Police said Peak and another man allegedly planned to rob two men and take two pounds of marijuana from them. He was pulling a gun from his waistband when it fired and struck his leg.

Police said one of the suspected dealers, Aljuwon Eiland-Sims, shot Peak several more times in the legs.

Akron Fire Department paramedics took Peak to Cleveland Clinic Akron General for treatment.

Police said Eiland-Sims, 19, of Streetsboro, was also arrested and charged with felonious assault. He remains in custody at the Summit County Jail.

Police said the incident remains under investigation.
