Redmond-Hamilton was shot in the face Nov. 2 in the 200 block of Kinsey Avenue and was taken to University of Cincinnati Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

Short's bond is set at $39,000. His relation to the victim is unknown.

Officials said Redmond-Hamilton's father, Charron Hamilton, transported him to the hospital.

"Our officers were actually working the detail here at the UC Emergency Room encountered a male individual who was carrying a small child into the emergency room. It later became known to us once inside with the trauma team that he had suffered from a gunshot wound,” said Cincinnati Police Chief Blackwell.

A grand jury will hear Short's case on December 1.
