HAMILTON, Ohio -- A 22-year-old man was arrested Thursday in connection with an early morning shooting in the parking lot of an apartment complex.

Christopher M. Parks, of Hamilton, is charged with having weapons while under disability stemming from an incident that took place Jan. 31 at the Indian Springs Apartment Complex on Hampshire Drive. 

On that night at approximately 2:45 a.m., police found Derrick M. Brown in the parking lot of the Hamilton property suffering from multiple gunshot wounds to his abdomen. He was transported to University of Cincinnati Medical Center for treatment.

Police apprehended Parks at 2:10 p.m. Thursday on Hopple Street in Cincinnati, according to the arrest report. It's unclear if investigators are looking for other suspects.

Parks is set to appear in Hamilton Municipal Court on Friday morning. Additional charges may be filed.
