- Cuyahoga County Council members voted yesterday to sell the Ameritrust complex downtown and lease the new government headquarters out of the property. The county will take on ownership of the building following a 26-year lease deal with Geis Cos., based out of Streetsboro. The vote effectively put the kibosh on alternate plans set forth by Optima Ventures, which dealt with the former Huntington Building.

- We're looking into the scant details available following a double shooting in otherwise quiet west side suburb Rocky River overnight. The incident took place near Wagar Road and Westway Drive, according to reports.

[UPDATE, 11:35 a.m.] Rocky River Police Chief Kelly Stillman reveals the 39-year-old man to be Michael MacGillis, Jr. Via 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."

- Joey's Restaurant, the former downtown Chagrin Falls staple that was destroyed in a 2011 fire, will essentially reopen in Cedar Lee district of Cleveland Heights, according to Sun News' Brian Byrne.
