Police identify man killed in West End shooting

1 dead, 1 in critical condition in West End shooting

CINCINNATI (FOX19) - One person is dead and another is in critical condition after shots were fired in the West End Monday, Cincinnati police said.

Police have identified the deceased man as 24-year-old Mister Williams.

The name of the other victim is being withheld.

Officers say they were called to the area of David Street near Laurel Park at 12:55 p.m. Police later clarified the location as the 600 block of Wade Street.

Williams was reported to have been pronounced dead at the scene, though a homicide release says he succumbed to his injuries at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center.

The other victim was taken to UCMC and is reportedly in critical but stable condition.

The wounded victim ran and asked someone in a nearby car for help, said Capt. Maurice Robinson.

Robinson adds Monday’s holiday was their “saving grace" because children were not around during the time of the shooting.

Police are still trying to determine suspect information.

Witnesses are asked to contact police or CrimeStoppers at (513) 352-3040.
