Youth shot to death; two suspects sought

        Cincinnati police are searching for two black male teens in the Saturday shooting death of another teen.

        Christopher P. Parks, 17, was shot as he walked through Kennedy Heights in the 6400 block of Kennedy Avenue shortly before 11 a.m., police said.

        He was rushed to University Hospital, where he later died from his injuries.

        Police said the first suspect was between 15 and 17, about 5 feet 3 inches, wearing a dark-colored bubble coat that may have had a tan collar. He was about 150 pounds.

        He also wore a black or blue skull cap and black shoes.

        The second suspect is also between 15 and 17, described as between 5 feet 7 inches and 5 feet 10 inches tall with a thin build.

        He also wore a dark-colored bubble coat, black pants and a blue or black skull cap.

        Neighbors said such incidents are rare in the neighborhood.

        “Stuff like this has never happened since I've been in this area. But it could have happened anywhere,” said Willa Jackson, 53, who lives across the street from the scene but wasn't home when it happened. “It is sad — just 17 years old.”

        It was Cincinnati's fourth homicide this year.
