Cincinnati police: 2 dead, 2 injured in Saturday shooting

CINCINNATI (AP) — Cincinnati police say two people are dead and two others are injured after a shooting on the city’s west side.

Authorities responded to the scene just after 4 a.m. Saturday where they found one victim dead on a sidewalk. Additional details about what happened weren’t immediately available.

Police identified the deceased as 23-year-old Bobbie Odneal III and 25-year-old Rickey McGowan. The two other victims were being treated at a hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Sgt. Michael Bell tells WCPO-TV that police have no one in custody and no description of the shooter.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports police also are investigating a separate shooting that occurred late Friday night about a mile away in which at least two men were shot. Authorities do not believe the two shootings are connected.
