Joseph Wright: Man police say shot, killed 15-year-old scheduled to appear in court

CINCINNATI - A man police say shot and killed a 15-year-old near the Clay Wade Bailey Bridge is scheduled to appear in a Hamilton County courtroom Tuesday morning to either enter a plea or have a trial date set.

Officers arrested 21-year-old Joseph Wright in connection with the shooting death of D'Maris Glover in June. A judge set his bond at $2 million.

Wright, nicknamed "Joe Crack," has been charged with three counts of felonious assault in connection with the shooting that killed Glover and injured two others.

Cincinnati police say the incident took place at about 11:40 p.m. June 19 near the 400 block of West Third Street near the Clay Wade Bailey Bridge.

The other two victims received treatment at University of Cincinnati Medical Center for non-life-threatening injuries. Officers said the pair are in their 20s and cooperated with investigators. Police said all of the victims were from Covington.

Witnesses at the scene told a 9 On Your Side crew member while they saw gunfire in downtown Cincinnati, they believe the incident began across the Ohio River in Covington.
