CINCINNATI (FOX19) - Newly-released 911 calls shed light on the aftermath of an interstate shooting that killed a 28-year-old man last month.

Lian Cung Nung was driving home from his job as a sushi chef when shots were fired through his car window. It happened during rush hour on the Sixth Street ramp to southbound Interstate 75 near the Brent Spence Bridge.

Nung died at the hospital the next day.

"I saw him slumped over and the driver's window blown out," a woman told 911 dispatchers. She said Nung's car collided with her vehicle after the shooting.

"He kept bumping my car. I don't know if he lost consciousness or what but he kept going and hit me," she said.

Witnesses reported hearing gunshots then seeing Nung's vehicle travel off the roadway and hit a guardrail.

It's not clear if the shooting was a road rage incident. Few details of the investigation have been released, but police believe the two shots were fired within a short vicinity of the interstate.

"This car just zoomed by going down second street and shot him straight through the window," one person told dispatchers.

Nung's wife was in the passenger seat at the time of the shooting. She was not injured.

"We looked over and saw a woman screaming and apparently her old man was slumped over on her lap … because she was screaming," another 911 caller said.

Nung had been at work at the Fresh Thyme Market in Anderson Township, relatives said.

He lived with his wife and three children in Crescent Springs, according to a Fresh Thyme Spokesperson. Nung had worked at the grocery store for about a year.

No arrests have been made in the case.

Police are asking any witnesses to the shooting to come forward or contact Crime Stoppers at 513-352-3040.
