CLEVELAND – A $2,000 reward is being offered after a 16-year-old boy was shot and killed at a George Clinton concert Saturday night. Police say Sylvonte Williams was killed, three others were injured and they are still searching for the suspect. Sunday afternoon city leaders held a press conference addressing the shootings and stressing the importance of finding the suspect. Following the press conference, Williams’ Aunts Monica Maddox and Tonya McCall spoke to NewsChannel5 about the death of their nephew. Maddox says, “The family is totally devastated. He was only 16 years old. We just still can’t believe it. ” When asked about how the shooting happened or who may have been involved, McCall responded, “All things are revealed. We think eventually we will find out all of the facts. The Cleveland Police department… they’re doing their jobs.” According to police,  just before 10 p.m., police responded to Martin Luther King Boulevard and Reservoir Palace for shots fired. A large fight broke out after a concert featuring George Clinton at Luke Easter Park’s “Family Unity in the Park” event, according to police. During the fight, an unknown male produced a handgun and fired several shots in the crowd, police said. The other victims were 20-year old Marquis Davis, 14-year-old Jeremiah Wilson and 22-year old Termaine Hatcher. None of their injuries were fatal and they are currently recovering at MetroHealth Medical Center. Police Chief Michael McGrath says, “I know that there are several people out there, probably more than several people, that know the identity of the suspect.” Anyone with information in connection with this incident is asked to contact the Cleveland Division of Police. Anonymous information can be given to Crime Stoppers by calling 216-252-7463 or text messaging to Text TIP657 plus your message to Crimes (274637). There is currently a $2,000 reward for an arrest.
