UPDATE: Man shot several times in Cleveland
The shooting happened on Stephens Road around midnight.
A Cleveland man is recovering from a shooting that left him with several injuries on Tuesday.
Police said 36-year-old Desmon Benton had to be airlifted to the hospital.
The biggest question investigators are trying to figure out is who shot this man. His condition remains unclear, but the shooting is enough for neighbors to fear for their safety.
"Scares the hell out of me. I want to move," Denise Morgan, a neighbor said.
The scene is clear at the apartment on Stephens Road, but the sound of gun shots hasn't faded for Denise Morgan.
She was about to take one of her dogs out when she heard a frightening noise.
"As I was getting the other one ready to come out, I heard four gun shots. I watched outside my window and didn't see anybody run out or anything," Morgan said.
Officers said there was a get together outside the apartment.
Close to midnight on Halloween, they started receiving 9-1-1 calls about gunshots in the area. When police arrived, they found Benton with several gunshot wounds.
Sgt. Evie West said it's too soon to say what led to it, but they're looking at all options.
"You want to make sure when you talk to witnesses and the victim that the stories are all the same," West said.
That could help piece everything together for investigators. Until then, neighbors like Morgan are calling for officers to patrol the area more often.
"A police presence would deter people from doing things blatantly out in the open," Morgan said.
Police said they have responded to the apartment complex before, but it's unclear if that particular apartment is included in that.
