Man shot to death in Oakley house

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        A 35-year-old man was fatally wounded Monday night inside an Oakley house, and the resident of the home was being questioned by police.

        David Caster, whose address wasn't available, was pronounced dead shortly after arrival at University Hospital, a nursing supervisor said.

        Police responded to the 3500 block of Harrow Avenue, near Camberwell Road, about 6:30 p.m. after neighbors reported hearing shots.

        Sgt. John Newsom said the victim was found in the living room.

        The resident of the home, who neighbors said is his mid-50s, was being questioned Monday night, Sgt. Newsom said.

        “He's a nice guy. He's been here for 10 to 15 years,” neighbor Nancy Parks said.

        The 86-year-old Mrs. Parks said her neighbor, who is divorced and retired, lived alone in the single-family home.

        “This street has always been quiet. All the neighbors are very friendly,” she said. She said her neighbor, who cut her grass and ran errands for her, “was one of the best.”
