A woman who was shot Tuesday morning by someone in a passing car as she sat in a vehicle in the Sherbondy Hill neighborhood has died of her wounds, police say.
Latajah Leatherwood, 28, of Akron, died Tuesday night at Cleveland Clinic Akron General Medical Center, according to the Summit County Medical Examiner’s Office. Leatherwood was shot in the head, authorities say.
The shooting occurred at about 11:40 a.m. Tuesday on the 900 block of East Avenue, according to police. A 52-year-old male says he was driving on East Avenue when he noticed a vehicle behind him was driving erratically.
