2nd man arrested in connection to downtown Cleveland shooting
Cleveland Police Sgt. Jennifer Ciaccia confirmed an arrest warrant was issued on June 15 for Kevin Raul Del Valle-Salaman, 24.
Lorain Police arrested Del Valle-Salaman on the same day, Ciaccia said.
Del Valle-Salaman is facing nine counts of complicity to commit murder, all first-degree felonies, according to Cleveland Municipal Court documents.
The arrest comes after a judge set a $9 million bond for 25-year-old Jaylon Jennings, who was arrested on July 11 by Cleveland Police and U.S. Marshals.
According to Jennings’ arrest warrant, he saw several of the victims inside Rumor Bar & Lounge and “purposely attempted to cause the death of nine individuals by intentionally retrieving a firearm.”
According to Del Valle-Salaman’s arrest warrant, he drove the Kia Sportage used to transport Jennings and a third man, who remains unknown, to a parking lot near W. 4th Street.
Cleveland Police said the trio then entered Rumor Bar & Lounge, where they saw a group of people leaving.
Jennings then got the gun, which police say was a 9 mm, from the trunk while Del Valle-Salaman and the third individual waited in the parking lot, the warrant says.
Del Valle-Salaman then drove Jennings and the unknown man away from the shooting location.
