CLEVELAND (WJW) – A Cleveland high school student was killed after school Tuesday afternoon, the Cleveland Metropolitan School District confirmed.
According to CMSD Safety & Security Chief Lamont Dodson, the 18-year-old John Adams student was sitting at a bus stop in the 3800 block of Martin Luther King Jr. Drive around 3:15 p.m. after school when he was shot and killed.
Ward 2 Councilman Kevin Bishop told FOX 8 that it appeared to be an orchestrated attack on this student after school.
“My heart goes out to the family and all of this child’s loved ones. It’s unthinkable,” Bishop said.
Police have not given any further details at this time, but Bishop said CMSD surveillance cameras are being reviewed to see if they captured the shooting.
“This gun violence must stop,” Bishop said.
Cleveland police are investigating.
