Police authorities in Akron have confirmed that a shooting incident on a Wednesday afternoon resulted in the death of a teenager and injuries to a man.

At around 4 o’clock, when the altercation began, Akron police were contacted. The shooting happened close to the intersection of Dan Street and E. Glenwood Avenue.

A 17-year-old child and a 23-year-old man were both inside a car when police arrived at the scene, both with gunshot wounds. Tragically, the teen was pronounced dead after being taken to Cleveland Clinic Akron General Hospital.

With non-life-threatening injuries, the man was taken by ambulance to Summa Health Akron City Hospital. Investigations so far indicate that the victims were on the road when a car pulled up and someone inside opened fire before driving off.

The number of shot casings discovered by authorities at the scene indicates how severe the shooting was. Although the gunfire was strong enough to hit the house on Damon Street, fortunately, no injuries were reported among the occupants. The names of the victims have not yet been made public by the authorities.

Another shooting has been reported in eastern Henrico County in the meantime. The Henrico County Division of Police reported that the incident occurred in the early evening of August 16.

Close to Nine Mile Road and Interstate 64, the shooting occurred. Authorities have not yet confirmed whether anyone was shot by gunfire or whether anyone has been taken into custody in relation to the incident.

The investigation will be carried out by the Virginia State Police. The ongoing investigation, according to police, could result in a brief hiccup in westbound traffic on Nine Mile Road at Gordons Lane. In this case, the police have not made many details public. The case is still under investigation.
