CINCINNATI - Police continue to investigate a fatal shooting in Lower Price Hill that happened Sunday night.
Brian Thompson was one of three people shot in the 2100 block of Storrs Street around 10:30 p.m.
Thompson, who had two children including a newborn baby girl, was pronounced dead at the scene.
"The crime scene covers a whole block. It goes from Burn Street to Neave Street and our victims were found in three locations," said Lt. Joe Richardson with the Cincinnati Police Department.
Emergency crews transported the other two victims to University Hospital. One suffered a gunshot wound to the stomach. The other victim was hit in the shoulder. Their names and conditions are not being released at this time.
"Initial description of the suspects was two males in white T-shirts running north from here so we are still looking for them. When we got here it was very chaotic and took us awhile to restore order before we could investigate," said Richardson.
Thompson's neighbors said he was in the wrong place at the wrong time. He apparently was on his way home when two gunmen approached his red vehicle wanting to steal it after a robbery and shooting had taken place up the street just moments before according to neighbors.
"I'm guessing they were trying to get away and they wanted his car. That's the main story. You hear a thousand stories but that's the main one. They wanted his car and either he didn't want to give it to them or what I don't know what exactly but they ended up just shooting him," said Danielle Drahman, Thompson's neighbor.
Thompson is survived by his two young children including a newborn baby girl.
"I've lived next door all my life. He was this close to his house and couldn't make it," said Randy Walters, Thompson's neighbor. "He was wonderful human being, if you knew the guy you would think nothing but positive about him."
Cincinnati Police Chief James Craig visited Thompson's mother on Monday morning to let her know everything was being done to solve her son's case. "We want these cowards brought to justice," said Craig.
"There's no doubt in my mind somebody saw something someone knows something and shame on you if you are not talking to the police because in my mind you are no different than the person who pulled the trigger."
One person was arrested during the chaos on a warrant, but police said the arrest is not related to the homicide. Officials are still searching for the two suspects in the shooting.
