CHEVIOT, OH (FOX 19) -

An 18-year-old man shot in Cheviot early Tuesday has died.

Cheviot Police Chief Joseph Lally said Chandler Baker died at University of Cincinnati Medical Center.

A police officer on routine patrol heard gunshots in the area of Albert Street and Applegate Avenue  just after 3:30 a.m.

He found the victim in the back of an apartment complex in the 3800 block of Dina Terrace.

Baker was unable to speak with officers. He has relatives who live in the complex.

Police think he was shot at the intersection of Albert Street and Applegate Avenue before jumping a fence and collapsing. Several shell casings were found about a block away on Albert Avenue.

Investigators recovered a gun.

Baker was taken by ambulance to Mercy West Hospital and then flown by AirCare to UCMC.

Cheviot police are continuing to investigate, along with the help of Green Township police and the Hamilton County Coroner's Office.
