Cleveland Heights Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a suspect they said is responsible for the death of a 15-year-old boy.

Sunny Patel, of Highland Heights, was shot and killed Friday around 8 p.m. when an armed robber barged into the Mr. Hero restaurant on South Taylor Road in Cleveland Heights.

Police said the man, about 5’10” to 6″, shot Patel once in the head, demanded money and took off.

Patel was taken to University Hospitals where he died around 11 p.m., according to the family.

“I miss my child,” Ravi Patel, Patel’s father, said through tears.

Surveillance photos from the incident show the suspect wearing gray sweatpants with a white stripe down the side, a black Nike sweatshirt and a white bandana on his face.
