Suspect posted to Facebook moments before deadly shootout


The man killed in a shootout that also left a Cincinnati Police officer dead had posted to Facebook moments before the incident.

“I love every last one of y'all to whoever has been in my life .... You're the real mvp,” wrote Trepierre Hummons.

Cincinnati Police named Hummons as the man responsible for Officer Sonny Kim's death at a press conference on Friday. Chief Jeffrey Blackwell says the Facebook post and additional texts he sent to friends led investigators to believe he planned suicide by cop.

The final Facebook message was posted around 9 a.m on Friday. About thirty minutes later, police responded to Whetsel Avenue and Roe Street for a report of an armed man acting erratically, according to officials. That 911 call was made by Hummons, according to officials.

Hummons was shot and killed by another officer in the exchange. 

According to court documents, Hummons is 21-years-old and has a disorderly conduct charge stemming from a 2013 incident. 

As of 3:30 p.m., Hummons last post had been shared 24 times and liked by 142 people.
