Man shot during drive-by shooting in Cleveland's Corlett neighborhood

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Police are investigating after a man was shot Tuesday in a drive-by in Cleveland's Corlett neighborhood.

The 20-year-old victim was later treated at University Hospitals for a gunshot wound to his arm, according to a Cleveland police report.

The shooting happened about 1:30 a.m. in the 13300 block of Chapelside Drive near East 131st Street.

The victim told police he was at a friend's home and stepped outside to wait for a ride. He saw a car carrying a group of women, then heard another car take off, the report says.

Within moments, the man said he heard five or six gunshots and felt a sharp pain, the report says.

Paramedics rushed him to the hospital while police stayed behind to collect several spent bullet casings from the street.

When officers questioned the man's friend, he said both he and the victim were outside speaking with the group of women when a gold Buick passed by. He said a passenger in the car began firing at them both, the report says.

Police continue investigating and no suspects have been identified.

The victim was released from the hospital later on Tuesday, the report says.
