Ohio Teenager Fatally Shot In Garage

ELYRIA, Ohio (AP) – Police say a 17-year-old has been shot and killed inside a garage at an Ohio house.


Elyria police responding to a shooting around 8:30 a.m. Sunday in the unattached garage found the teenager with a gunshot wound to his face. The police release says medical personnel declared him dead at the scene. His name was being withheld until relatives could be notified.


Police say several people at the house were taken in for questioning and a 17-year-old at the scene was arrested on a charge of tampering with evidence. He was being held at a juvenile detention facility pending a hearing in Lorain County Juvenile Court.


Authorities haven’t released information on the circumstances surrounding the shooting in the city roughly 30 miles (48 kilometers) southwest of Cleveland.
