CLEVELAND HEGHTS, Ohio (AP) – Police have arrested a suspect in the fatal shooting of a teenage employee at a fast food restaurant in suburban Cleveland.
Cleveland Heights police say the man was taken into custody Sunday night after officers spotted a person matching the suspect’s description. Detectives are still investigating.
Authorities have said an armed suspect entered a Mr. Hero store Friday night and shot the boy once in the head before taking money from the cash register and fleeing.
The Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner’s Office on Saturday identified the teenage boy as 15-year-old Sunny Ravi Patel of Highland Heights. He died at a hospital.
Surveillance photos show a suspect wearing a hooded sweatshirt, sunglasses and a rag across his face enter the store with a gun at his side.
