Man shot outside Lorain club

LORAIN — A man was shot outside the Club Copa at 934 Broadway around 2:20 a.m. Sunday.

Ernie Ortiz was wounded once in each of his legs after arguing with people in a car, according to Sgt. Michael Hendershot. Ortiz, age and address unavailable, had just left the bar before being shot.

Hendershot said he didn’t know what the argument was about, and police do not have a description of the shooter or the vehicle he fled in. Ortiz’s condition was unavailable Sunday night.

The Club Copa owner and manager did not return a request for comment. Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to call Detective Chris Kovach at (440) 204-2105.
