A 19-year-old man was killed and a person was critically hurt  in a double shooting near Mt. Airy School Thursday, Cincinnati police said.

They found Parish Perkins, 19, dead inside an apartment building stairwell and a second victim suffering from gunshot wounds, police said in a prepared statement.

Perkins was pronounced dead at the scene.
