Woman shot while driving by man on bicycle in Cleveland’s Glenville neighborhood

CLEVELAND, Ohio — A man on a bicycle shot and 18-year-old woman while she was driving Sunday in the city’s Glenville neighborhood, police said.

The shooting happened about 6:30 p.m. on Superior Avenue and East 105th Street. No arrests have been made in the case.

The woman had just left a Family Dollar near the intersection. A 19-year-old man was sitting in the passenger seat of the car, police said.

The two heard eight gunshots, and the man told police he looked back and saw a man with a handgun riding a bike, police reports say.

The man told the woman to drive faster, police reports say. The woman said she couldn’t because her right leg was hurting and she couldn’t push on the gas pedal.

She realized she’d been shot, police reports say. The man helped her drive a few blocks until they saw an ambulance and flagged it down.

The ambulance drove the woman to University Hospitals, where she was treated for gunshot wounds to the back and right arm, according to police.

Officers found seven fired bullet casings near the intersection, along with one bullet fragment. The car had three bullet holes in it, including two that ripped through the back of the car and through the driver’s seat.

A nearby church has surveillance cameras, but police were unsure at the time if they recorded the shooting.
