EUCLID, Ohio (AP) — A man has turned himself in to police in connection with a double shooting that left one woman dead and a teenage boy seriously injured in Cleveland.

Euclid police Lt. Jeffrey Cutwright says the unidentified suspect is now in police custody after surrendering to officers Thursday evening.

Police were called to a home on Cleveland’s east side around 1 p.m. Thursday following reports of the shooting. Officers found a 60-year-old woman dead inside the Crennell Avenue residence along with a wounded 17-year-old boy.

The teen was rushed to University Hospitals in critical condition. The woman marks Cleveland’s 127th homicide in 2016.
