CINCINNATI (WXIX) - A 54-year-old man is dead and another is under arrest in a homicide investigation overnight, according to the Adams County Sheriff’s Office.

David Reedy was found suffering from a gunshot wound at about 7:30 p.m. Thursday in the 1600 block of Ohio 136 in the community of Cherry Fork in Winchester, according to Sgt. Randy Walters.

Deputies and paramedics responded to that location after receiving 911 calls including one from the man who was arrested for his murder, Walters tells FOX19 NOW.

“He just said he shot the guy,” Sheriff Kimmy Rogers tells FOX19.

Reedy was pronounced dead at the scene.

An acquaintance of his, Clyde Delong, 68, is under arrest on a murder charge and held without bond at the Adams County Jail, jail records show.

Delong is accused of shooting Reedy at Delong’s home and reported it to dispatchers, according to Adams County Sheriff Kimmy Rogers.

It’s not clear yet what led up to the shooting, the sheriff said.
