A suspect has been charged in the shooting death of a Hamilton man in June, according to Hamilton Police Chief Craig Bucheit.

Cameron Treitay Kidd Wilson, 21, of Harrison, was taken into custody Friday at his Hamilton County residence and charged with murder and felonious assault in the slaying of Darrian K. Shamel on June 2, according to the Journal-News.

Wilson was booked into the Butler County Jail on Friday evening. According to court records, Wilson was indicted last month by a grand jury and is scheduled to be arraigned Thursday in Butler County Common Pleas Court.

Officers were called to the 700 block of Charlton about 12:15 a.m. on June 2 and found Shamel had been shot. Shamel, 22, was transported to Fort Hamilton Hospital, where he died.

The Butler County Coroner’s Office said Shamel died of gunshot wounds.

A woman placed a 911 call stating an intruder had shot her son.

“Someone just barged in and shot my son,” the caller said. “I need an ambulance right away.”

When the dispatcher asked if he was conscious, the woman answered, “He is still breathing. He is gasping.”

As the dispatcher gathered information for police and paramedics en route, the mother said while crying, “Darrian? Ma’am, he is gone. He’s gone.”

Dispatchers instructed Shamel’s girlfriend in CPR until help arrived.
