Community searching for answers after four juveniles shot in Winton Hills
CINCINNATI (FOX19) - A community is searching for answers after four juveniles were shot in Winton Hills Saturday evening.
Police say there were two male and two female victims, all between the ages of 12 and 15.
The shooting took place a little after 5 p.m. in the 400 Block of Kings Run Drive, according to Cincinnati police.
Police say the injuries are non-life-threatening and all the victims were taken to a nearby hospital.
“Just the fact that kids in that age range are out they should be able to play safely it’s concerning,” witness Ronell Harris said.
“From my understanding two of my nieces and one of my next-door neighbor’s kids got hit by gunfire,” Harris said.
He said he ran to the scene after getting a call about the shooting. Harris says he saw three of the victims, one was shot in the leg and another in the back.
He says he believes this was a random act.
“It had to be these kids don’t mess with nobody the one that got hit in the back was a straight-A student," Harris said.
“I’m still wondering why because if this can happen in our neighborhood it’s going to happen anywhere with somebody just driving by and shooting kids at random,” Harris said.
“These kids didn’t do nothing to anybody these kids are good kids and I know them all and they don’t bother nobody but to just drive by and shoot them with no cause that’s unsettling,” Harris said.
Police say there is currently no information on the suspects.
