CINCINNATI (FOX19) - A man is under arrest on a murder charge in the slaying of a 17-year-old boy in Lincoln Heights.

Randy Akabuaku, 24, is accused of gunning down 17-year-old Dante Harrington in 900 block of Adams Street on Friday night, according to the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office.

He is held without bond at the Hamilton County jail.

Akabuaku was charged after “it was determined through evidence discovered and witness statements” he caused the teen’s death, court records show.

Harrington’s shooting is unrelated to another one on the same day nearby in the 9900 block of Chester Road at Our Corner Store, sheriff’s officials said.

A motive in the shootings was not released while both incidents remain under investigation.
