Police-involved shooting at downtown Cleveland courts complex

CLEVELAND (AP) – Investigators say two Cleveland Metroparks rangers have shot and wounded a man in an exchange of gunfire at the city’s downtown Justice Center Complex. One of the rangers was also struck.

Metroparks Chief Ranger Dan Veloski says the two rangers arrested a man on a felony warrant Tuesday night. They were taking the suspect in for booking when gunfire broke out in the Justice Center’s underground garage in downtown Cleveland.

Police say the man drew a weapon and began firing at the officers, hitting a female ranger in her bulletproof vest. Both rangers returned fire, hitting the suspect. He was taken to a hospital. His condition wasn’t immediately available.

Both rangers were taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Investigators have not released the name of the suspect.
