A 9-Year-Old Girl Shot and Killed While Sitting in a Car

A 9-Year-Old Girl Shot and Killed While Sitting in a Car

cleveland shootingCLEVELAND, Ohio — Wednesday a 9-year-old girl died from a gunshot to the head while sitting in a car near the scene of a shootout, witnesses said.

 

The girl, identified by the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner as Saniyah Nicholson of Maple Heights, was seated in her mother’s black Chrysler about 7:30 p.m. when the gunfire erupted, according to witnesses and Cleveland City Councilman Joe Jones.

 

A bullet hit Saniyah in the head and she died after being taken to University Hospital’s Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital, according to police.

 

The girl’s mother parked on the side of Lee Road, near Cloverside Avenue, and went into DNA Level Boxing Club to pick up her son, Yakov Charles, a boxing coach at the gym said.

 

“She was a good girl,” Charles said of the girl. “She was fun.”

 

Cleveland police briefed Jones at the scene. He said a group inside a car opened fire on a group standing outside, Jones said. The other group returned fire, Jones said.

 

Jones’ details were confirmed by four police sources, who were not authorized to publicly discuss the case.

 

Cleveland police have not said if officers made an arrest, but a man was handcuffed and placed in the back of a police cruiser and driven from the scene.

 

Dozens of police officers swarmed the neighborhood. Homicide detectives took measurements and interviewed witnesses. A crime scene officer put 20 markers on different pieces of evidence, including at least a dozen bullet casings. Acting Cleveland police homicide Commander Daniel Ross was at the scene.

 

Cleveland gang detectives — along with the gang unit’s commander, Gary Gingell — were also at the scene investigating.

 

The shooting happened in front of a strip of businesses on Lee Road that house two hair salons, two cellphone stores, and the gym. An abandoned church sits at the end of the block. At least 50 people stood outside the Lee-Harvard Plaza shopping center across the street, mostly in stunned silence.

 

“That young lady could have been my daughter,” Jones said. “It hurts deep inside my being and we just must do better.”

 

Kent State University Earned a Talented Architectural Student

Kent State University Earned a Talented Architectural Student

A student at Kent State University in Ohio is incredibly talented with the models of stadiums that he creates.

 

David Resnik is a 36-year-old architect student who creates models of stadiums as a hobby.

 

Resnik used to work in sales and was not happy with his job. 3 years ago, his brother suggested he start building model stadiums as a hobby, which changed everything.

 

In his teen years, he used to build stadium models just because of the love he had for it. In 1995, he was featured in a “Plain Dealer” story with Jacobs Field.

 

One of Resnik’s friends who also happened to know Bill Willoughby, dean of the College of Architecture and Environmental Design at Kent State University, contacted Willoughby to tell him about Resnik’s work.

 

Willoughby was impressed and liked all the designs Resnik had created. He tried to guess what type of programs Resnik had used to create the models, however, Resnik had no clue of what the program names were.

 

Willoughby came to the realization that Resnik creates his models all by hand, which is why he is so talented. His models are extremely detailed and look very realistic.

 

He includes everything in his designs. Buildings, greenery, sidewalks, etc. Even inside the stadiums or the buildings, he includes the small designs.

 

He sometimes uses Google Maps to get images of the buildings and will work with PhotoShop as well. He cuts every single piece a few times until he gets the size he wants, then uses a double-sided tape to put everything together.

 

He even includes lights in his designs! The lights are battery-operated and he uses a small switch to turn them on when he wants to.

 

For one of the fields he had created, he spent about 300 to 400 hours working on it.

 

Some of his field designs were donated to charity. His latest design on NC Park in Pittsburgh will also be donated to charity.

 

As a kid, this hobby started with building other things like airplane models with Legos or Construx. This has been his hobby since the age of 5. He’s a natural!

 

Another interest that sparked his hobby was his love of baseball. Jacobs Field led him to build things even more detailed than ever.

 

It all started with “some scissors and some cardboard and some glue,” he says. And just like that, a legendary architect was made.
