PEPPER PIKE — Police are investigating a person of interest after a shooting at Landerwood Plaza early Sunday morning that left four teens injured, according to reports. At least 21 rounds were fired with most aimed at a Volkswagen Jetta as it left the parking lot of the north plaza, officials said on Thursday.

An 18-year-old man from Garfield Heights in the Jetta suffered a gunshot wound in each leg, according to Orange and Pepper Pike police. He was located at the Shell gas station on Chagrin Boulevard in Orange and transported to Cleveland Clinic Hillcrest Hospital.

Two more victims were in another car, a Ford Fusion, which was struck by a single gunshot, police said. One round caused gunshot injuries to two men in the back seat of the car, a 16-year-old from Cleveland and a 17-year-old from Beachwood, the report states. Police said that the fourth victim, an 18-year-old man from Beachwood who was not in either car, had cuts in his hand from broken glass.

Pepper Pike police are asking anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 216-252-7463.
