CINCINNATI (FOX19) - A second man is now charged in a fatal shooting of a passenger on a Metro bus.

Jamel Williams is wanted for the homicide of Neko Larkin on Aug. 17.

Last month, Joshua Ervin, 30, was arrested on a murder warrant for Larkin’s death.

Larkin, 21, was shot while riding a Metro bus in the 900 block of Dana Avenue in North Avondale. He was headed home from work at the time.

The Larkin/Richardson family released the following statement upon learning of the second man charged, “The family is still mourning the loss of a very loved brother, son, and father. He was a very hard-working ambitious young man whose life was cut short due to senseless violence that had nothing to do with him. All that we ask is for anyone with information to come forward. Thank you for your help and prayers at this time.”
