Summaryhttp://Police say they approached victim's SUV because he was a burglary suspect. They say when they walked up he flashed the muzzle of a gun at them so they opened fire, with two rounds hitting victim in neck and shoulder. Victim fled and surrendered a mile away. Police later admitted finding no weapons in his SUV, but were sure to tell media about his lengthy criminal record. Community reacted angrily after an earlier Cleveland police shooting that went to a grand jury for firing 137 shots into two unarmed people. http://www.wkyc.com/story/news/2013/12/13/cleveland-police-shooting-questions/4016471/
