Police nearby as gunshots erupt

        Cincinnati homicide detectives had to put down their hot dogs and draw their weapons Monday when gunfire interrupted their lunch.

        Sgt. John Newsom was at Mr. Gene's Dog House on Beekman Street in South Cumminsville when he and other officers heard gunfire about 12:15 p.m. The shots were fired from a white car with three men inside, and aimed at another vehicle. No one was hurt.

        At least one weapon was recovered.

        Felonious assault warrants against one suspect were pending.

        The front-row seat for gunfire came on Sgt. Newsom's last Monday working for the Cincinnati Police Division. The 26-year veteran retires Friday, having taken a job in Warren County.
