Cleveland Heights Police are asking for help finding two suspects wanted in connection with the shooting death of 13-year-old Londan Hill Monday night.
Police say they have issued arrest warrants for 16-year-old Brylin Pickens and 14-year-old Da’Vantae Cleveland.
Typically, 3News does not release the names of juvenile suspects. However, in this case, we deemed it necessary considering police have identified them as armed and dangerous, and are asking for the public’s assistance locating them.
The shooting happened Monday night at about 6:22 p.m. Hill, who was visiting Cleveland Heights from Wisconsin, was shot while in the kitchen of the house at 820 Woodview. Officers arrived on the scene and immediately started rendering first aid to Hill, but he ended up passing away. Detectives determined that two shots had been fired into the back of the home from the backyard of a house three houses down and to the east of where the crime occurred.
