CINCINNATI - A police officer shot a suspect in Winton Terrace early Tuesday morning.
Cincinnati police officer Kraig Kuhnz shot a suspect, 43-year-old Eric Jones, in the 5000 block of Winneste Avenue near Craft Street at about 2:45 a.m. Jones matched the description of a man who fired his gun in the neighborhood earlier Tuesday.
When Kuhnz approached Jones to question him, the pair allegedly engaged in a struggle, which led Kuhnz to shoot Jones in the leg. Emergency crews transported Jones to University of Cincinnati Medical Center with non life-threatening injuries.
Authorities closed Winneste Avenue to traffic while they investigated.
Officials have not released any additional details about the shooting at this time.
