Police identify woman killed in Over-the-Rhine shooting
CINCINNATI (WXIX) - One woman is dead and two other people are injured after a shooting in Over-the-Rhine Saturday morning.
Officers say they were dispatched around 5:30 a.m. to East McMicken Avenue near Grant Park.
Brandi Turner, 35, was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.
Officers say that two other people were shot and taken via private vehicle to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center.
Their conditions are unknown at this time.
Grant Park Neighborhood Watch Captain John Donaldson says he isn’t surprised that the shooting happened but is surprised that crimes are still happening in the area.
Donaldson says that sometimes it is common to see about 100 people on East McMicken around 2 a.m.
He adds that there are several cameras and LED lights, installed by Duke Energy, in the area.
“They added LED lights all throughout this area, so at nighttime, it is like a stadium through here. So, it’s easy to see. This is not the place to commit crimes,” Donaldson said. “You are going to get caught.”
Police do not have a suspect.
It is unclear as to what led up to the shooting.
Officers are still investigating.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Cincinnati Police Department Homicide Unit at 513-352-3542.
