Sharonville fast food restaurant shooting victim identified

SHARONVILLE, Ohio (FOX19) - The victim shot and killed Monday afternoon at a Sharonville Rally’s was identified as Michael Brice, 32, according to police.

The shooting happened around 12 p.m. at 2225 E. Sharon Road, Sharonville Police said.

Brice, who is from Springfield Township, was shot multiple times as he was ordering food at the drive-thru, police said. Brice was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say the male suspect is still at large and is described as 6-feet tall, 250 pounds, and wearing an all blue work-style uniform. The suspect’s vehicle is a 1997 green Ford Thunderbird with Ohio plate HFZ9451. The car has damage to the rear passenger window.

They say the suspect fled east on Sharon Road.

It is not clear what preceded the shooting, but this was a targeted attack and not random, according to police.

“I don’t know how long he was following him. I don’t want to speculate on anything,” said Lt. Walt Cordes, Sharonville police. “The only thing I know is that the two cars, the Thunderbird was behind the Honda, pulled up behind the Honda in the drive-thru. Somebody approached the driver’s window and fired several rounds.”

Police said Tuesday they have good leads and valuable information, but are still actively investigating.

Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to call Sharonville police at 513-563-1147 or Crimestoppers at 513-352-3040.
