CLEVELAND, Ohio — A 21-year-old woman was shot early Saturday morning in the city’s South Collinwood neighborhood. The shooting happened about 2 a.m. on East 140th Street just south of Coit Road, Cleveland police spokeswoman Jennifer Ciaccia said.
The victim’s condition was unknown late Saturday afternoon. She was taken to University Hospitals in a private vehicle, Ciaccia said.
While the circumstances of the shooting remained unknown, the victim became the latest in a string of seemingly unrelated shootings that victimized young women in the city.
Two women, Shonna Adams, 21, and Jamila Carter, 22, died after being shot Monday while driving in the city’s Central neighborhood, according to police.
The shooting happened about 8:50 p.m. Monday on Cedar Avenue at East 28th Street.
That same day a 17-year-old girl was shot in the face and shoulder by a 17-year-old boy. She was laying in bed talking to him when his gun went off as he was playing with it. He ran from the scene.
A 30-year-old woman was shot along with a 50-year-old man Thursday at Westburn Avenue and Hillsboro Road. One man was taken into custody in connection with the shooting.
