CINCINNATI -- A man is dead after being critically wounded in a shooting Thursday.

Cheatham was shot during an attack in Avondale at about 8:38 p.m. Thursday in the 700 block of Ridgeway Avenue.

At the time, police officers had to clear a chaotic crowd so that medics could get in to treat the victim.

The shooting happened near the same spot where a young girl fell victim to gunfire in July.
