Police searching for suspects in OTR shooting Sunday

CINCINNATI (FOX19) - One man died after a shooting in Over-the-Rhine Sunday afternoon.

Officer said they responded around 2:42 p.m. to the 1700 block of Vine Street for a report of a person shot.

Jovan Fleming, 27, was transported to University of Cincinnati Medical Center, where he died shortly after, they said.

As police arrived on scene, a large crowd fled, according to Lt. Patrick Caton.

The crowd became hostile toward officers as they tried to help the victim, he said.

That led to an “officer needs assistance” call that summoned all the working officers in the area, he said.

Police are still searching for two male suspects.

They say one was wearing a gray hoodie and the other was wearing a black mask at the time of the shooting.

They also are looking for a vehicle they say is connected: a gray, 2015 Kia Forte with Ohio license plate HRN 9375.
