Man found fatally shot outside Silverton apartment building

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        A man was shot and killed outside a Silverton apartment building Saturday night.

        The killing was Silverton's first homicide in about a decade, village police said. It happened within a block of the suburb's police headquarters.

        Officers were called to the 6900 block of Silverton Avenue just after 5 p.m. after neighbors heard gunfire. They found a man's body on steps on the side of the building.

        The man was identified as Rashawn Berry, 25, police said.

        “Witnesses said there was some type of confrontation on the front stoop with a guy going into the building,” said Silverton Police Lt. Bruce Plummer. “Then several shots were fired.”

        Mr. Berry, whose address was not available late Saturday, was visiting a relative in the building, police said. There is no indication Mr. Berry and his killer knew each other, police said.

        The gunman ran and was still at large Saturday night, officers said.
