Black-on-black shooting is latest in string

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        While marchers were gathering in Bond Hill to protest black-on-black crime, a black man was injured Saturday in Over-the-Rhine, at least the 46th black-on-black shooting in six weeks.

        Timothy Murrell, 36, was shot in the back while he sat in a vehicle outside a Linn Street pool hall, police said.

        He was treated at University Hospital and released.

        Cincinnati Police Sgt. Steve Saunders said the incident occurred about 11:30 a.m. in the 1900 block of Linn Street. Reports indicated that two black males left the pool hall and one or both of them opened fire on Mr. Murrell, Sgt. Saunders said.

        At least one suspect was in custody Saturday evening.

        According to an arrest report, Aaron Garrett, 23, was being held on charges of felonious assault and drug possession. Officers who searched Mr. Garrett upon his arrest found a small amount of marijuana in his pants pocket, the report said.
