Cleveland Racks Up 19 Murders in 2 Weeks, 6 Kills in 2 Days, Including 83-Year-Old Woman
The year of Black Lives Matter just keeps giving and giving. Here's the latest Cleveland edition.
The murder of an elderly woman is one of the latest homicides during a violent month in the city.
According to Cleveland police and the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner, there have been 19 homicides in Cleveland since Nov. 3.
Katie Brown, 83, was found shot to death inside her home in the 9000 block of Manor Avenue around 9:50 a.m. on Nov. 14.
When police arrived, Brown’s son was already there and had found his mom dead of multiple gunshot wounds.
Police said there were also multiple bullet holes in her home.
Who would shoot an 83-year-old woman? Criminals. They're running wild.
The 19 murders in a little over two weeks are topped by 6 killings in 2 days, which includes Brown and a 63 year old man.
Anthony Lance, 63, of Parma, was found lying in a driveway in the 3400 block of E. 134th Street on Nov. 13.
Witnesses told police a man got out of a blue vehicle, walked up to Lance and shot him. The shooter then drove off.
All of the victims appear to be black.
What's the toll at for the year of Black Lives Matter in Cleveland?
The city’s unofficial total for homicides in 2020 is now 170.
Last year's total was 118. Imagine if the GOP had run on Operation LeGend.
