CINCINNATI (FOX19) - Cincinnati police are investigating a homicide in Mt. Auburn.

Devon Proctor, 19, was found shot at an apartment complex parking lot at Auburn Avenue and Southern Avenue about 5 a.m. Monday, police say.

Police said he was deceased at the scene.

No arrests have been made.

Thomas Proctor, Devon’s father, who now lives out of state, says whoever killed his son should be ashamed.

“They took a great person out of this world that had so much potential,” he said. “They need to turn themselves in.”

Thomas hasn’t been told more than what CPD reported publicly.

“I don’t know if he was left there or if there was a confrontation in the parking lot, I really have no idea,” he said. “I got the phone call and I just immediately dropped to my knees and dropped my phone. I didn’t know what to say or do.”

Thomas says his son would have turned 20 next month.

“He was always happy, always smiling and always wanted to be around family,” he said.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Homicide Unit at 513-352-3542.
