Shooting, abduction reported in Clifton Heights

CINCINNATI (FOX19) - A man is at-large Tuesday night after police say he abducted two people at gunpoint in Fairview Park.

Cincinnati police at the scene said the incident began around 4:30 p.m. when people in two cars in the park began shooting at each other. One of the drivers was shot in the shoulder, officers said. That person drove to the hospital with a minor injury.

The account of the driver that was shot differs. In the incident report, that driver says the suspect shot at him “while driving by" and contains no mention of the victim firing back.

The driver of the other car wrecked in the park, police say. He proceeded to point his gun at two people and threaten them, according to the incident report.

He then pointed his gun at another victim, whom he made drive him to McMicken Avenue at Vine Street. From there, the suspect “jumped out and ran,” according to the incident report.

The scene was cleared as of 6:30 p.m.
