Police: 17-year-old shot in Oxford

OXFORD, Ohio (FOX19) - A 17-year-old was taken by helicopter to a Cincinnati hospital following a shooting Sunday afternoon in Oxford, according to Oxford Police Chief John Jones.

Police responded at 4:10 p.m. to a mobile home in the 5200 block of College Corner Pike for a report of a person shot.

The victim, who has not yet been identified, suffered a gunshot wound to the side, police confirmed. He was initially taken to McCullough-Hyde Memorial Hospital in Oxford, but shortly after was taken by helicopter to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center.

Jones said the teen is stable and his injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

Initial investigations by Oxford police indicate that the shooting happened at a car wash near the College Corner Pike mobile home, but the teen was taken to that location after the shooting occurred.

Police haven’t released any suspect information, but investigators believe the shooting was “not a random act," Jones said.
