CINCINNATI (WXIX) - A man is dead Thursday night after a shooting in Covington, police say.

Covington police officers found him near the 15th Street Bridge around 8:55 p.m. after responding to a report of two gunshots.

The man, who is in his 60s, was suffering from a gunshot at the scene.

EMS transported him to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center, where he died. His identity has not been released.

Officers found one or more witnesses who recalled seeing two men flee the area, possibly on bikes.

One of the suspects was possibly wearing gray and black and had dreadlocks to his shoulders, according to a witness account.

Police are confident about identifying the suspects because of the amount of businesses with surveillance cameras in the area.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the Covington Police Criminal Investigation Bureau at 859.292.2234.
