CINCINNATI — Cincinnati police have arrested a man in connection to the homicide of Terrence Hammonds in January.

The Cincinnati Police Department Homicide Unit and the Fugitive Apprehension Squad arrested Kareem Friemoth, 21, on Friday, Feb. 18, according to a statement from the department. Friemoth was arrested on a murder warrant.

Hammons was found dead from a gunshot wound on Jan. 19 in the Pleasant Ridge neighborhood in the 5700 block of Montgomery Road. His body was discovered in a parking lot near an apartment complex.

According to court documents, Hammons and Friemoth, "with other co-conspirators," threatened someone with guns in the parking lot. They assaulted that person and robbed them of personal items including jewelry, clothing and a controlled substance, court documents say.

Friemoth then shot at the robbery victim with a semi-automatic hand gun and Hammons was fatally shot during the robbery, court documents say. Documents do not say whether Friemoth fired the fatal shot that hit Hammons or if the robbery victim fired back.

Anyone with information on Hammonds death is asked to call the Cincinnati Police Department Homicide Unit at 513-352-3542.
