CINCINNATI — Police announced Friday officers arrested a suspect in the shooting death of a 20-year-old man early last month.

Officers with the Cincinnati Police Department’s Homicide Unit took 18-year-old Tiyon Mincey into custody Friday, July 1, in connection with the June 6 shooting death of Jamell Rumph. Officers found Rumph dead on Waverly Avenue in South Fairmount.

Mincey is facing a murder charge.

Rumph’s family members told WCPO shortly after the shooting that he had been attending a nearby house party when an altercation ensued.

Friends and family remembered the 20-year-old as hardworking and family-oriented, saying he was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Information on Mincey’s appearance in Hamilton County court was not immediately available.
