Gun violence hits northeast Ohio
Other headlines: Private research claims fracking triggered Ohio earthquakes; Cleveland-Akron area lost more than 7,200 jobs in July

  • Private research claims fracking triggered Ohio earthquakes
  • Cleveland-Akron area lost more than 7,200 jobs in July
  • Gun violence hits northeast Ohio
    A rash of gun violence this weekend has led to several deaths in the region.

    Police say three separate shootings within three hours in Cleveland's east side neighborhoods left two men dead.

    Police have not reported any arrests in the incidents.

    Meanwhile Police in Youngstown say a 17-year-old boy has been killed in a "pre-arranged" fight that attracted a large group of people.

    Witness accounts put the crowd of young men on the street at about 50.

    Detectives were interviewing witnesses late Sunday. No arrests were reported.

     

    Private research claims fracking triggered Ohio earthquakes
    A New York-based researcher says a series of earthquakes in Southeast Ohio were likely caused by fracking wells. 

    The Akron Beacon Journal reports that the private research group believes the series of small quakes near Lake Clendening in Harrison County late last year were triggered by nearby fracking operations by Oklahoma-based Gulfport Energy. 

    The report is currently under review by a scientific journal. 

    The authors say the earthquakes were likely caused by pressure from the hydraulic fracturing on deep, previously unknown faults. 

    A report issued last month by the Government Accountability Office found that earthquakes associated with fracking and waste injection wells puts groundwater at risk of contamination in Ohio and other states.


    Cleveland-Akron area lost more than 7,200 jobs in July
    The Cleveland-Akron area lost 7,242 jobs last month according to a new employment report published by Crain’s Cleveland Business

    The study, based on a sampling of payroll data , shows a 0.6 percent decline from June. 

    Analyst Jack Kleinhenz says a drop in construction spending and a slower pace of hiring by large goods-producing firms is behind the July drop. 

    Crain’s reports that year-to-year job growth is still up more than 1 percent compared to last July.
