MOUNT HEALTHY, Ohio — A man died Monday night after police found him suffering multiple gunshot wounds in Mount Healthy, the city's police department said Tuesday morning.

On Tuesday, police announced they had identified the victim as 31-year-old Aaron Chambers.

According to a news release, officers responded around 10 p.m. Monday to the 7800 block of Clovernook Avenue for a report of a man lying on the ground in a parking lot. Investigators believe the man was sitting in his car when another man approached, at which point he got out of the vehicle. The second individual then fired at the first before running from the scene.

The Hamilton County Sheriff's Office, which is assisting in the investigation, released this surveillance video in hopes of identifying the suspect:
