'He was a free person, a happy person’: Man killed on Metro bus remembered

CINCINNATI (FOX19) - Neko Larkin’s 3 year old daughter, Serenity is too young to understand what happened to her dad over the weekend.

But her mother, Shawntae Harriel knows she can’t let her little girl forget him.

That’s why she played YouTube videos for Serenity on Monday afternoon. Shawntae told us she had no idea some of these existed. Like one video from Christmas, where Neko showed off gifts he bought for his family.

“I didn’t even know he made this. I just found it this morning.” said Shawntae Harriel.

Shawntae has two kids with Neko. 1 year old Finnegan and 3 year old Serenity.

The Neko she wants people to remember is the one in those videos. Shawntae said he was kind, smart and loved music.

“He was a free person, a happy person..” said Shawntae.

He was also a hard worker. We’ve learned Neko was on his way home from work at Meijer on Geier Drive when he shot and killed.

Police said Neko was caught in the middle of a gunfire exchange, and wasn't the intended target.

Police told us on Monday that the person in the pictures below is “potentially” facing a murder charge in this case.

If you know anything about this case or recognize the person in those pictures released by CPD, call police.

Crimestoppers’ number is 513-352-3040.
