SYCAMORE TOWNSHIP, Ohio -- Three people have been arrested and one remains at large in connection with a shooting that killed one man and injured another, according to the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office.

Police said they discovered two men, 21-year-old Jacob Baker and 22-year-old Jarid Carl, shot on Blue Ash Road early June 21. Both men were taken to University Hospital, where Baker died and Carl was released after successful treatment the same day.

According to the sheriff's office, the murder was the result of a late-night confrontation outside Car Rock Cafe June 20. A single shot was fired at the scene.

Two suspects were arrested in connection with the incident later that week: Christian van Winkle, 18, and Natasha Becker, 25, were both charged with carrying a concealed weapon and illegal possession of a firearm in a liquor permit establishment.

Charges for the Baker's murder, however, were not filed until Tuesday. David Shirley, 28, turned himself in Wednesday, police said. 

The final suspect, 29-year-old Benjamin Quinn, remained at large, according to a news release. He and Shirley both stand charged with aggravated murder and felonious assault.

Police said Quinn is known to frequent Deer Park, Silverton, Springfield Township and Westwood. He also has several distinctive tattoos: The name "Maleah" on his neck, a half-sleeve with interstate signs on his upper right arm and "Get money" tattooed across both wrists.

Police asked anyone with information about the murder or Quinn's location to call the sheriff's office at 513-851-6000 or Crime Stoppers at 513-352-3040.
