Some East Cleveland leaders and residents are calling for greater city oversight, after yet another fatal nightclub shooting this week.

The latest shooting took place in the parking lot behind Club Dew Drop on Euclid Avenue, killing one and injuring four others.

East Cleveland Police have arrested one suspect in the case, but continue their search for two others.

Still, Black on Black Crime President Al Porter Jr. told News 5 the East Cleveland Law Director and the city administration should be doing more to curb nightclub violence.

Porter pointed to East Cleveland Police records which indicate officers responded to Club Dew Drop 24 times for violence since March 2016.

Porter believes city leaders should have called in the Cuyahoga County prosecutor’s office, declaring the nightspot a nuisance a lot earlier, and not waited until after this weeks fatal shoot-out.
