Two shot, one critical, after confronting teens who stole their kids' bikes in Cleveland, police say


CLEVELAND, Ohio — A man is in critical condition and a woman injured after they confronted two teens they accused of stealing their children’s bicycles, according to police reports.

The shooting happened about 10 p.m. Thursday on East 200th Street in the city’s North Shore-Collinwood neighborhood near the Cleveland-Euclid border.

A 34-year-old man is in critical condition after being shot five times, once in the chest, and twice each in the left and right arms, police reports say. The 27-year-old woman was shot in the left hip.

The woman told police she spotted two teens riding bikes that she believed the two stole from her children the night before at Neff Park, police reports say.

The man and woman confronted the duo on the bikes about stealing them, when one of the teens pulled out a handgun and fired eight shots at them, police reports say.

The bicyclists sped off south on East 200th Street. Witnesses told police one cut through Neff Park and a nearby Hyundai dealership and the other rode towards a nearby apartment building.

The woman and man hopped in their car and the woman drove them to Euclid Hospital. They were both flown via emergency helicopter to MetroHealth.

The man was unable to talk to police because of the extent of his injuries, police reports say.
