Cleveland police say security guards killed man

CLEVELAND (AP) — Cleveland police say a man fatally wounded in his car was shot by private security guards.

Police say 20-year-old Are’es Richards refused to move his car when ordered and tried to run down a security guard. He was found unconscious early Sunday in his car in a gas station parking lot and died later.

Police spokesman Sgt. Sammy Morris tells The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer (bit.ly/17TxyWo) that guards for a private party on the city’s east side were clearing the area when an unarmed colleague asked Richards to move his car.

Richards allegedly refused and tried to run down the guard.

Three guards fired more than a dozen rounds. Police say there were no immediate charges.
