CINCINNATI (WXIX) - A teenager and an adult are charged in the shooting death of a man police say they baited out twice with the promise of sex.

Luke Macke, 23, was found in a crashed car on Harrison Avenue in Westwood on June 24. He died at the scene from gunshot wounds.

Police say Christian Henderson,19, and Savannah Wilson, 17, used social media to lure Macke out “with the agreement of sex” on two separate dates.

Henderson and Wilson’s intention was to rob Macke, according to police.

On June 20, they attempted the ploy, but police say Macke was able to fight them off “with assistance from citizens.”

On June 24, police say they attempted it again, resulting in Macke’s death.

Henderson and Wilson were identified through Facebook, Snapchat and an iCloud search warrant as well as a cell phone number, police say.

They were arrested Wednesday with help from the Fugitive Apprehension Squad.

Police say both have been charged with aggravated murder and aggravated robbery.
