Crime Stoppers raises reward for Northside front porch shooting of elderly man

CINCINNATI -- A 65-year-old man was shot while he was sitting on his front porch in Cincinnati's Northside neighborhood in February, and Crime Stoppers is asking for help.

Anyone who gives information to authorities leading to an arrest may earn an increased reward of $2,000, Capt. Paul Neudigate said Tuesday.

Two teen males approached Gregory Tramble on February 20 outside his home in the 1400 block of Apjones Street. The teens demanded Tramble's backpack, and threatened him with a handgun. When Tramble held onto his bag, one of the boys shot him in his stomach. They took the backpack, and ran from the house, Neudigate said.

Tramble was taken to University Medical Center with critical injuries, and doctors found the gunshot separated his spine.

Police, Neudigate said, believe the suspects pose a safety risk to the people of Northside.
