WESTWOOD, OH (FOX19) -

"Homicidal violence" is what investigators have said is what killed a 20-year old found dead in his truck in Westwood on Sunday.

Gerald Hummer, II was found shot in his vehicle on Schwartze Avenue in Westwood on Feb 8. 

"He had a gunshot wound,” said Hamilton County Coroner Dr. Lakshmi Sammarco.

Dr. Sammarco's office is investigating Hummer's death. Right now, Sammarco says it's believed the cause of death is a single gunshot wound to the chest.

"The initial assumptions seem like they're pretty strong and may hold up. But, we've been surprised in the past,” Sammarco said.

Two men, Aubre Weathersby and Shawn Allen, both 19-years old, are charged with murder in the case. FOX19 NOW has been told that Allen and Hummer were good friends. We've also learned that Allen showed up to a vigil for Hummer the day after his death. 

But, at this point, it's still unknown who fired that shot.

"We're looking into it. Of course, we do testing on the victim's hands and everything, and clothing. We'll know more as soon as the trace evidence people are done with their work,” Sammarco said.

Sammarco says they're not done investigating yet, and are waiting on other lab results before drawing any final conclusion.

"Initially, we didn't find anything else. We're still looking at the autopsy findings and lab reports. We won't know much more until we get the toxicology and the rest of the lab reports back,” she said.
