CLEVELAND (AP) — Police have arrested a suspect in connection with the fatal shooting of a 41-year-old man in a neighborhood that borders Cleveland’s downtown area.
Officers were dispatched to a home on East 43rd Street around 8 a.m. Sunday following reports of a shooting. At the scene police found Nakika Burston suffering from a gunshot wound.
Burston was rushed to MetroHealth Medical Center, where he was later pronounced dead.
Police say homicide detectives learned that the 40-year-old suspect came to Burston’s home that morning and shot him over a drug debt.

The incident remains under investigation.
