CINCINNATI (FOX19) - Two men are in custody in relation to two separate drive-by shootings in July and August, according Cincinnati police. But one of them is also facing charges that are related to accusations of shooting the other.

Police say Clarence Edwin Hurt, 20, and Deary Brooks, 27, were both involved in two separate drive-by shootings on July 23 and Aug. 15.

Two people were injured in the July 23 shooting. According to police, one of the same victims was shot at again — but not struck — by the same two suspects.

Now, both men have been arrested, but Hurt is facing additional charges after allegedly shooting Brooks during an argument.

According to court documents, Brooks is the boyfriend of Hurt’s mother. During an argument, documents indicate, Hurt shot Brooks in the hip with a handgun and fled the scene in a car.

Hurt is also charged on three counts of felonious assault from the previous drive-by shootings, affidavits show.

Police say Brooks has been in the Hamilton County Justice Center for some time in relation to the drive-by shootings.
