CINCINNATI — Cincinnati police are investigating a shooting that left one man dead early Saturday morning in Northside.

According to police, officers responded to the report of a man shot around 1:30 a.m. in the 4000 block of Hamilton Ave. When they arrived, police said crews determined 35-year-old Delmar Griffin was dead.

Residents and business owners in Northside said they could hear multiple gunshots overnight. Reginald Stroud, owner of Anybody's Dream convenience store, said he was shocked to hear about a deadly shooting so close to him.

"I've never experienced that here in Northside, but I cant say it's shocking," Stroud said. "To hear that it happened so brazenly here — and only a few doors up from my store last night, it is sort's concerting, it's alarming from the standpoint [that] I hope that this is not something that is going to be a regular thing."

Police have not said if there are any suspects in the shooting or what may have lead up to the shooting, urging anyone with any information about the shooting to call the Cincinnati Police Department's Homicide Unit at 1-513-352-3542.
