Cleveland City Council Candidate Nelson Cintron reports that his campaign van was the target of gunfire yesterday afternoon as a volunteer drove the vehicle through a neighborhood near West 50th and Storer.

19 Actions News reports that the volunteer driver was not hit, nor were there any other injuries.

More to come as the story develops.
