CINCINNATI — Cincinnati police are looking for a silver sedan with its rear window shot out after a fatal shooting in Evanston Monday evening.

Officers responded to the call of a shooting at around 6:30 p.m. on Woodburn Avenue. John Wilson, 37, was found shot on the sidewalk. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Officials shut down Woodburn Avenue between Blair and Dauner avenues during the investigation.

The shooting is causing concern for local activists who have been working to prevent violent crimes from happening in the area.

"It's the same story, different names," Rev. Peter Mingo said. "We're killing each other, we're killing each other."

Police have not provided any additional suspect information. Mingo said he hopes someone can provide information.

"Come forward and step forward," Mingo said. "Tell everybody what they know, what they saw, who they think did it, why would there be a reason for this to happen?"

Mingo said he will continue to "keep praying, keep working."

Anyone with information about this homicide is asked to call the Cincinnati Police Department's Homicide Unit at 513-352-3542.
