OSP investigating deadly shooting on I-75

MIAMI TOWNSHIP, Ohio (FOX19) - Ohio State Highway Patrol responded to a fatal shooting on southbound Interstate 75 in Warren County Monday afternoon.

The Warren County coroner confirmed he had been called to the scene.

According to the coroner, a 64-year-old man victim was found inside a car at the 40-mile marker.

Three others were detained by the Middletown Police Department, police confirmed.

Police say one of those detained is a female suspect currently being investigated after her car matched the description of what police say they were searching for. Previously the Springboro Police Department confirmed they were searching for a vehicle that left the scene.

Southbound I-75 was shut down just south of the Austin Landing exit for several hours but reopened around 3:30 p.m.

“We did have to shut the highway down for quite a while,” Miami Township Police Sgt. Paul Nienhaus said. “Whenever you have a shooting, especially when there’s a death involved, there’s gonna be evidence, some obvious, some not so obvious, that you’re gonna wanna be looking for, in this case, including gunshot casings, that kind of thing. We did our investigation and kept it as timely as we could before opening the highway back up.”
