Five people found dead after shooting in Cleveland

Five people are dead after a shooting that inside a Cleveland home.

Police say that 41-year-old Sherita Johnson sent her daughter inside the house upon and the 9-year-old was shot.

Police say the gunman then shot and killed Johnson inside her car.

Johnson was seven months pregnant and the baby did not survive.

Police found a 60-year-old man, a 19-year-old man, and a 17-year-old girl also shot dead inside the home.

The nine-year-old girl survived, and is now the only witness to the deadly shooting.

"How can someone have a heart to do something like this. He has got to be a heartless person to even do something like that," said William Waters, a neighbor of the victims.

"Only an animal would do this to another human being," said Chief of Police Calvin Williams.

"She describes one suspect having a mask on. As far as any other suspects, that's all we have right now," said Deputy Chief of Police Tomba.

Police say Johnson's two-year-old son was in the back seat of her car when the she was shot, but he was not hurt.

Police do not have a motive for the shooting and are seeking the public's help in finding the person responsible.
