Person of interest identified in alleged Deadly Conduct incident in Cleveland

A "shots fired" incident is being investigated in Cleveland following an incident early Saturday evening.

Cleveland police officers have identified a person of interest and recovered a weapon they believe was used in an alleged incident of deadly conduct Saturday.

Shortly before 6 p.m., Officers Joe Rosas and Shakara Titus were dispatched to  Tanglewood Subdivision, around the area of Hortense and Frances streets, where the alleged incident took place. When they arrived, they received information from witnesses on the scene that led to the identity of a person of interest.

At the home where the person of interest was located, police found an AK 47 and seized other items that will be tested against evidence collected at the scene, according to Sgt. David Edwards, a spokesperson for Cleveland Police Department.

“If the weapon matches evidence found on the scene, the person could be charged with Deadly Conduct,” Edwards said.

The identity of the person is being withheld at this time pending the outcome of the investigation.
