Tuesday is the third straight day with a pair of shootings making headlines in Cleveland.

Following a fight at a Woodland Avenue apartment complex today, two people were shot around noon. They were transported to MetroHealth Medical Center, where authorities are determining their conditions. No arrests were made as of the late afternoon.

On Monday, a double homicide was revealed after a postal worker discovered the body of Earl Norman, 54, at Lausche Avenue and Norwood Road (just south of St. Clair). The body of Monica Curry, 39, was later found in a nearby apartment building.

And on Sunday, two men were fatally shot in separate cases. Michael McClendon, 27, was shot on West 43rd Street during a drive-by. Mario Carter, 35, was shot on South Moreland Boulevard.
