OVER THE RHINE, OH (FOX19) -

Cincinnati police are searching for a 46-year-old man they say shot and critically wounded his brother during an argument on the playground of Peaslee Park late Wednesday.

The gunman shot his sibling, 43, twice in the hip near Sycamore and 13th streets while a crowd of people enjoyed the park on a summer night about 8:15 p.m. and pedaled away on a red bike.

His brother is fighting for his life at University of Cincinnati Medical Center, said Lt. Tim Brown, the night chief.

"He's in critical condition because of the arterial damage, so he's critical but stable," Brown said. "He's not out of the woods yet."

The brother will be charged, but police are waiting to see if the victim survives. If not, the suspect will likely face a murder charge.

In an unrelated incident, police responded to a second shooting in Over-the-Rhine about 10 p.m. Wednesday.

A 15-year-old boy told authorities he was walking home from the store when he heard several gunshots and realized he was hit, Brown said.

He is being uncooperative and police doubt his story, Brown said.

He was taken to Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center and is expected to recover.

No arrests were made.

Anyone with information about either offense is asked to call Crime Stoppers: 513-352-3040.
