CINCINNATI (WXIX) - A SWAT situation in Avondale ended late Thursday after Cincinnati police say a home they searched for a possible shooting suspect turned out to be empty.

The SWAT team arrived at a house on Mann Place just off Reading Road around 9:45 p.m.

They were summoned as a result of two shots-fired incidents, including one that resulted in the shooting of a woman near Glenwood Avenue and Reading Road, according to police.

Officers said they found the woman grazed in the face by a bullet about 6:30 p.m.

First responders took her to University of Cincinnati Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.

As police investigated her shooting, more gunshots rang out about an hour later, a block to the east near Reading Road and Mann Place.

Officers said they found several shell casings at that scene.

SWAT members planned to search the home for a potential suspect in the second shots-fired incident

A gun was found near the home sometime after the shots were fired, according to police.

The shootings are a block away from the stretch of Reading Road on which a 16-year-old was shot earlier this week in what witnesses described as a drive-by shooting.

The teen, Galevon Beauchamp, died Thursday morning.
