The suspect in custody in connection with a quadruple homicide in Slavic Village earlier this week is the father of one of the victims, Cleveland police said.

Armond Johnson, Sr., 26, has not yet been formally charged in the killings but was arrested on aggravated murder charges Thursday morning following an arrest Tuesday in a separate aggravated robbery case.


Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost has ordered a review of state databases that are being accessed by outside law enforcement agencies. He also wants to know how that data is being used.

The names of 107 Civil War veterans who served in the U.S. Army's "colored troops" have been added to the Roll of Honor on Cuyahoga County's Soldiers' and Sailors' Monument in Cleveland's Public Square.

Their names join the 9,000 veterans of that conflict who were from Cuyahoga County, or enlisted from here.

Managers of the Port of Cleveland and other ports around the Great Lakes say they’re being overlooked in the national conversation about America’s crumbling infrastructure. 

On the heels of the nation’s seventh annual Infrastructure Week, the Port of Cleveland hosted a May 20 roundtable with port officials, maritime industry leaders and representatives of several Northeast Ohio Congressional members to talk about their needs. Port officials say it’s partly a problem of perception.
