Police investigating shooting, stabbing in Colerain Township

COLERAIN TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) - Colerain Township police are investigating a St. Patrick's Day shooting and stabbing on Colerain Avenue.

A police spokesperson says an officer was flagged down in his patrol vehicle near a car dealership in the 8600 block of the highway around 8:20 p.m. by a person who said he had been stabbed. While tending to the person, the officer noticed another person a short way up the street who complained of being shot.

The officer told the stab victim to lay down while he tended to the shooting victim, but the stab victim got up and ran across the street to a restaurant in the 8700 block, where he was stopped by another officer.

Both people were treated and transported to a hospital. The spokesperson said their injuries do not appear to be life-threatening.

It is not clear if any other people are involved.

Officers temporarily shut down the southbound lanes of Colerain Avenue between Joseph Road and Sovereign Drive while they investigated.
