Suspect in officer-involved shooting back in hospital

GREEN TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) -

A murder suspect who was shot at by Cincinnati Police over the weekend is back in the hospital.

David Franks, 45, was scheduled to be arraigned Monday morning, but he did not appear in court because he was taken back to the hospital.

Franks is accused of shooting and killing his father-in-law, James Schobert, 76, at a Green Township apartment complex.

The shooting occurred Sunday morning in the 4900 block of Arbor Woods Court.

Officers arriving on the scene heard multiple shots coming from behind the apartment building. They found a sliding glass door had been blown out and an assault rifle lying on the porch. When officers started to move into the apartment, they found Franks with a gun in his hand pointed at officers. Officers opened fire, striking Franks three times.

Officers found Schobert dead from a gunshot wound and an adult female and juvenile girl hiding who were unharmed.

Police believe the shooting was domestic. Franks had recently been charged with domestic violence for allegedly choking his wife. She was staying with her parents at the apartment where the shooting happened.

Franks was transported to University Hospital. He is charged with aggravated murder, aggravated burglary and three counts of attempted murder of a Police Officer.

The case remains under investigation by the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office.
