GREEN TOWNSHIP, Ohio (FOX19) - A teenager is now facing charges following a shooting that took place nearly three months ago.

Green Township police were called to a home in the 4300 block of Boomer Road on Oct. 26 for a report of a woman who had been shot.

Police say she answered a knock on the door to find a 16-year-old who demanded her phone and then shot her.

The woman was taken to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center with a gunshot wound to the chest, officials said.

The suspect ran from the home following the shooting, according to police.

“After a lengthy investigation involving multiple jurisdictions, Green Township Detectives have signed charges on a 16-year-old juvenile for felonious assault and aggravated robbery,” the Green Township Police Department wrote on Facebook.
