2 shot, 1 killed in OTR

CINCINNATI (FOX19) - A 61-year-old man, Douglas Robinson, was identified as the victim in an early Tuesday shooting in Over-the-Rhine, Cincinnati police say.

Officers said they were called to 13th Street and Walnut Street around 1:30 a.m.

Two men were found shot, including Robinson, who died at the scene.

The other victim was taken to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center. His condition was not released.

Investigators said Robinson was likely an innocent bystander.

Robinson experienced “chronic homelessness through the years,” Maslow’s Army tells FOX19 NOW. He had been living somewhere for less than a year, the organization says.

According to police, many shots were fired at the scene and cars and apartments were hit by bullets.

Police said there is possibly more than one suspect.

Cincinnati police are asking anyone with information to call CrimeStoppers at 513-352-3040.
