CINCINNATI – A man died after he was shot in the head in Over-the-Rhine Saturday afternoon, police said.

Greg Tremble, 33, was shot just before 5 p.m. at the corner of Green and Vine streets. Police were searching for a possible shooter seen wearing a red hoodie and jeans. Police briefly detained two men, including one matching that description, but then released them.

Police closed the road for hours as they investigated the scene.

"It's really terrifying, because I can't walk outside without something happening," neighbor Nita Jones said. "There's always something happening on this street."

Take a look at this raw footage from the scene by WCPO reporter Rose-Ann Aragon in the player below.

 

The victim was shot in broad daylight. Rev. Peterson Mingo, a local community leader, called on any witnesses to come forward.

"This is a senseless loss of life," Mingo said. "Whatever the problem was, they should have been able to resolve it, they should have been able to talk about it, but young people today don't have those skills."

Just hours later, a second homicide occurred Saturday in Bond Hill.
