CINCINNATI -- One person was shot to death Wednesday evening near Kennedy Heights Park, the same area where two people were shot exactly two weeks ago.

Responding officers found the victim at about 5:10 p.m. at 3561 Woodford Road.

The victim, who has been identified as Christopher Burroughs, 52, was taken to University of Cincinnati Medical Center. He succumbed to his injuries at the hospital.

Some residents who live near the site of the shooting say the area used to be safe. 

David Love, a friend of the victim who said he's known him since third grade, is afraid the area is getting worse.
