HAMILTON, Ohio — An 18-year-old woman is dead and two male victims were injured after a shooting Friday morning in Hamilton, according to the Hamilton Police Department.

Officials said officers responded around 12:30 a.m. Friday to a home on Second Street for a shooting. Once on scene, officers found the three people who were shot. The woman killed was identified by the Butler County Coroner as Mikina Riley, 18, of Hamilton. Police said she died on scene.

Mikina Riley was a student at the Miami School in Hamilton City School District. Her mom said she had a job and a bright future ahead of her.

"If anybody knows something, don't be afraid to tell. She didn't deserve this,” Barbie Riley said.

Barbie Riley said she remembers the last conversation she had with her daughter.

"She kind of sounded sad, and I said, ‘What's wrong?' and she said, ‘Nothing,’ That she had just woke up and she was going to go back to sleep and she loved me and she'd call me tomorrow," she said.

Mikina Riley never got to make that call.

"And then 20 minutes later I got the call that she was shot on the porch,” Barbie Riley said. “I'll never get to talk to her again."

Officials said the two male victims were taken to the hospital, and one was released from the hospital Friday morning. There's no word on the second victim's condition.

Police haven't said if there are any suspects or arrests made in this incident.
