CINCINNATI (WXIX) - A teen and an adult are dead while a third person is fighting for his life at a hospital following a triple shooting in Roselawn, according to Cincinnati police.

It happened in the 6200 block of Joyce Lane, shortly before officers responded about 5 p.m. to the parking lot of a fast food restaurant nearby for a reported shooting victim, police wrote in a news release.

Officers found a male juvenile victim suffering from a gunshot wound. He was taken to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center, where he is listed in critical condition at the last check.

Minutes later, around 5:15 p.m., Norwood police found the other two victims on Montgomery Road at the Norwood Lateral overpass.

Nonaisha Jones, 15, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Logan Lawson, 19, was taken to the hospital, where police say he died from his injuries.

An initial investigation determined all three gunshot victims were in the 6200 block of Joyce Lane when their injuries occurred, according to the police news release.

Homicide detectives are continuing to investigate.

Jones was a student at Woodward High School, according to the Cincinnati Public Schools.

The district released a statement on Tuesday’s shooting:

“While the investigation is still underway, we recognize this is a tragic event and our concern and sympathy is with the family, friends and school community. Counselors are on-site at the school to provide continued support for students and staff.”

Lawson, who graduated from Winton Woods High School in 2021, played football while he was a student there.
