Police have not released the name of the victim, and they have not commented on what led to the shooting.

This incident comes less than a week after the former Roosters Wings restaurant—located adjacent to the shopping center at the corner of Cleveland Ave. and Dublin Granville Rd.—announced it would be closing. Two different shootings took place at the restaurant between February and late April, one of which was fatal.

UPDATE: Police have identified 43-year-old Fidel Carrol as the victim.
