CLEVELAND (AP) — Authorities say one man is dead after leading police on a foot chase in Cleveland.
Cleveland police say officers were first responding to the area after neighbors reported hearing gunshots around 4:30 p.m. Wednesday.
Police Chief Calvin Williams say officers came upon two men who started running away. Officers ran in pursuit, and at least one of the men was reported to have a gun in hand.
Williams says one of the men fell, leaving a handgun behind. Officers chased that man to a backyard where he produced a second weapon.
