CINCINNATI — A 14-year-old juvenile is dead after he was shot late Saturday night in Lower Price Hill, according to police.

Officers from the Cincinnati Police Department responded to the intersection of Storrs Street and Neave Street before midnight Saturday.

When officers arrived on scene they found the shooting victim, Cameron Franklin, and pronounced him dead at the scene.

There is no suspect information at this time.

This is the second homicide near this intersection in Lower Price Hill, and the third juvenile killed by gun violence in five weeks.

Police are still investigating the homicide, and they ask anyone with information about this shooting to call them at 513-352-3542.

In previous reporting of this story WCPO mis-identified Gary Smith as Cameron Franklin’s father. Cameron’s mother, Patricia Franklin, tells police Mr. Smith is a father-figure to her son, and William Franklin is Cameron’s biological father. WCPO regrets the error.
