CINCINNATI — Three people were taken to the hospital after a shooting in the West End.

Cincinnati police responded to reports of shots fired late Thursday afternoon on Derrick Turnbow Avenue near TQL Stadium. Officers said someone fired more than 10 rounds before driving away from the scene.

George Lee Carter, 81, said he was in his home when he thought he heard a car wreck. He later learned it was a drive-by shooting.

"I'm trying to enjoy the rest of my life and now I'm scared to even sit outside," Carter said.

Bullet holes remain in a parked car — the back window shattered after the gunfire.

One person was likely the intended target and two bystanders were hit, police said. None have life-threatening injuries.

"So glad didn't no kids get hurt," Carter said. "All of it stop, that's what I'm praying for. It's getting hot for the kids to play. They can't even play outside."

Sine neighbors captured the shooting with surveillance footage.

Police are looking for the suspect. Anyone with information can leave a tip at 513-352-3040.
