Man Fighting for Life After Shooting in OTR
CINCINNATI (WKRC) -- A man is fighting for his life after being shot multiple times on Tuesday evening in Over-the-Rhine. Officers were called to West Elder and Hamer streets about 5 p.m. That's where a man in his 20s was suffering from gunshot wounds to his back and his head.
When crews got to the scene, they immediately started performing CPR. The victim was rushed to UC Medical Center. Investigators say the vicitm's injuries were very serious and life-threatening. The situation was so serious that Cincinnati Police's Criminal Investigation Section, which usually handles homicides, was called to the scene. As of late Saturday night, police say the victim was still alive.
Investigators say 3 men were seen running away from the shooting scene. It's not clear if police have located any of those suspects yet. Officials also say they're trying to see if this Tuesday evening shooting is connected to another recent shooting about a block away at Findlay and McMicken.
