ROCKY RIVER, OH (WOIO) -

Police in Rocky River are investigating after a deadly shooting in the city.

The shooting happened just after 10 p.m. on Westway near Wagar Road Tuesday night.

Rocky River Police Chief Kelly Stillman tells 19 Action News the shooting victims were walking down the street when they exchanged words with a passing car. It is unknown if the two parties knew one another, but it appears the meeting was not random.

Two people were shot, and rushed to Fairview Hospital. 39-year-old Michael MacGillis, Jr. of Rocky River died from his injuries. MacGillis, Jr. has a long criminal record for convictions ranging from domestic violence to drunk driving to failure to comply with a police officer.

No word on the surviving victim's condition at this time.

Neighbors say they didn't hear a commotion when the gunfire broke out.  Several of them were either sleeping or at work.  It appears that a dozen or more shots were fired.

There are no suspects.

Police ask anyone who saw anything to contact Rocky River at 440-331-1234 or CrimeStoppers at 216-252-7463.
