Cleveland Police are investigating a deadly shooting on the city's west side.

It happened just before noon Tuesday in the 11600 block of Lorain Avenue near the library.

Police say the victim, 18-year-old Mustafa McWhorter, was walking with another male westbound on Lorain Avenue when they were confronted by an individual driving a red pickup truck. 

The individual in the truck fired a shot, striking McWhorter in the chest/side.  The suspect then fled the scene, direction unknown. 

EMS transported McWhorter to MetroHealth Medical Center where he died.

"Don't nobody deserve to get shot.  Don't nobody deserve to get killed.  Not only did they kill the little boy but his mom is never going to be the same no more," said Camaro Alexander, who knew McWhorter.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact the Cleveland Division of Police Homicide Unit at 216-623-5464.  Anonymous information can be given to Crime Stoppers by calling 216-252-7463 or via text message: text TIP657 plus your message to Crimes (274637).
