CINCINNATI -- Police arrested a man who they said shot another man who agreed to give him a ride last summer.
Damon "Bo" Long, 42, asked the victim for a ride July 23 on Lexington Avenue in Avondale, police said in court records. They had known each other for 30 years.
Once Long entered the vehicle he brandished a 9 mm handgun, pointed it at the victim and pulled the trigger five times, but the gun didn't fire, according to police. Then he put a round in the chamber and fired into the victim's right side.
The victim suffered life-threatening injuries.
Police arrested Long Friday. He was charged with felonious assault.
Long was being held in the Hamilton County Justice Center pending an arraignment.
