EVANSTON, OH (FOX19) - An 18-year-old man is dead and three people were hurt in a shootout Wednesday, just hours after Cincinnati city and police leaders announced a plan to try to quell rising violence over the next 90 days.

Four people fired several gunshots at each other about 3 p.m. on Hewitt Avenue, police said. 

Nake'land Williams was pronounced dead shortly.

"Enough is enough," said Police Chief Jeffrey Blackwell at the scene. "It's extremely disappointing on a day where we, unravel, roll out a plan, a anti-violence summer safety initiative plan to specifically combat this type of behavior, when you have three or four people shot in broad day light."

No arrests were made. Police said the victims were the only ones involved in the incident.

The shooting erupted just after city leaders rolled out their plans in a press conference at a city park as they struggle to reduce violence that shot up this year. Shootings are at a 10-year high. 

As a result, more officers will be walking beats and the city's teen curfew will be strictly enforced.
