CINCINNATI -- Family and friends will gather in Oakley Saturday evening to remember Porshia Brooks, a week after the 20-year-old was found shot a vehicle in Norwood.
At 10: 30 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 16 police received a call that a witness found Brooks and Aaron Martin bleeding, unconscious and suffering from multiple gunshot wounds in the 5200 block of Carthage Avenue. Brooks would succumb to her wounds Tuesday. Martin remains in the hospital in critical condition.
"Porshia was a very sweet and energetic young woman," said Glen Schulte, Brooks' former teacher at the Zoo Academy, a program through Hughes High School at the Cincinnati Zoo. "Those who knew her will miss her greatly."
The vigil took place at 5 p.m. at the Red Dog Pet Resort & Spa located at 5081 Madison Rd, Cincinnati, OH 45227. Brooks worked at the business.
The motive behind the shooting is believed to be a robbery, but officers said they are low on leads and have not yet identified any suspects in the case.
“This is the first incident of this type that we've had this year, so I would call this rare." said Lt. Tom Williams of the Norwood Police Department.
Earlier in the week, Brooks family held a press conference pleading for anyone with information in the shooting to come forward.
If you have information on this shooting, police ask you call Crimestoppers at 513-352-3040 or the Norwood Police Department at 513-458-4520.
