39-year-old man fatally shot in Westwood

CINCINNATI (FOX19) - A 39-year-old man is dead in a shooting in Westwood Monday night, Cincinnati police said.

Officers responded to a report of a shooting at Werk Road and Glenmore Avenue about 9 p.m. The victim was identified early Tuesday as James Ellison.

A SWAT team arrived at the scene shortly after police announced the city’s latest homicide in a year of record slayings.

Police said SWAT was needed because they were investigating the possibility of a second victim in a house, but the scene was later cleared with no one found.

The victim’s identity is being withheld until the family is notified.

No information has been provided about possible suspects.
