New surveillance video hopes to find answers in Norwood homicide

NORWOOD, OH (FOX19) - Police have released a new surveillance video in an attempt to catch the suspects of an unsolved murder in Norwood.

Investigators say that the three suspects seen in the background of the video were walking toward the scene of a double shooting

Police there say Porshia Lynn Brooks, 20, was shot in the head on November 16 in the 5200 block of Carthage Avenue. She died on Tuesday from her injuries. Aron Martin, 21, was also shot that night, and remains at UC Medical Center in critical condition.

Police are looking for answers, but have no description of anyone involved. But, they're calling this shooting a case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

"I'm not even sure if the woman was okay. She didn't look like she was conscious. She had blood coming from, like, the back of her head, or something like that, and then there was a guy outside of the car who looked like he had, like he was bleeding from multiple spots," said the person who called 911 that night.

A police report indicates both victims were shot in the head outside of 5220 Carthage Avenue, and whoever is responsible is still on the loose.

"I was upstairs cleaning, and all the sudden you hear 'pow, pow, pow.' It was like three or four shots," said Brandie Chapman who lives on Carthage Ave.

Chapman was home with her sister when she heard the shots. She looked outside and saw a chaotic scene of crime scene tape and flashing lights, a scene she's not accustomed to seeing.

"You never know what's going to happen. We've lived on this street for 10 years, and nothing, to this scale has happened," Chapman told FOX19.

As for a motive? Police say it was a robbery. But, an incident of this kind, they say isn't commonplace in the city of Norwood.

"This is the first incident of this type that we've had this year. I would call this rare," said Lt. Tom Williams of the Norwood Police Department.

Investigators are following up on leads, but they have no suspect description.

Police say the two victims are friends, describing them as "good, hardworking kids."
