MIDDLETOWN, Ohio (WXIX) - One man is dead and another is under arrest in a fatal shooting in Middletown Monday night, police say.

Denzel Fuller, 22, is held on a murder charge without bond at the city jail, jail officials tell FOX19 NOW.

He was arrested a few hours after officers responded to the 2100 block of Grand Avenue for a report of gunfire at about 10:30 p.m., police said.

Tammy Schneeberger, who lives across the street from where the shooting happened, said she ran for cover as bullets flew outside her home.

“Just pop pop, just a loud bunch of shooting,” Schneeberger recalled. “Heard the popping and took off running because I didn’t want the bullets to come through the house.”

Officers found 42-year-old Terry Fuller, the suspect’s uncle, lying dead on the sidewalk curb, according to Middletown police.

Police identified Fuller as the suspect and found him in the 600 block of Lafayette Avenue.

Currently, there are no other suspects, according to police.

Middletown police said they are still trying to figure out the motive in the deadly shooting, but added Fuller and the victim did know each other. The two were even arguing before the shooting, police explained.

Anyone with information about this case is urged to call Detective McDonald at 513-428-7745, or 513-425-7700.
