ELYRIA — Three teens — two of whom are juveniles — are in custody after a fatal shooting near Clinton Avenue on Tuesday night.

According to a statement from Elyria police, officers were called to the area of 162 Clinton Avenue for a report of shots fired around 10:37 p.m. Tuesday. They found evidence of shots fired, but nobody who was involved in any shooting. Witnesses said they saw a man running through backyards toward Bell Avenue.

Ten minutes later, a vehicle pulled into the emergency room parking lot at University Hospitals Elyria Medical Center, with the driver saying a passenger had been shot. A nearby police officer saw an unresponsive white man covered in blood in the passenger seat. There was also a woman in the car.

The man, identified by police as Cody Snyder, 19, of Elyria, died a short time later at the hospital.

Three people were arrested without incident this morning, and face charges of aggravated murder. Two juveniles, ages 16 and 17, are currently being held at the county Juvenile Detention Home, and Kajaun Anderson, 18, of Clinton Avenue, Elyria, is being held in the county jail on no bond. He has an appearance scheduled for Thursday in Elyria Municipal Court.
