Teen escapes attempted murder charge

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        A Hamilton County grand jury ignored an attempted murder charge against the 16-year-old accused of shooting a 2-year-old boy in Over-the-Rhine.

        Instead, Larry Washington was indicted on Thursday on two counts of felonious assault, and one count each of inducing panic and having a weapon while under disability.

        The Price Hill teen is being tried as an adult in the July 20 shooting of Devonte Ross. The toddler was standing along Vine Street when shooting broke out between Mr. Washington and Dominic Mitchem.

        Mr. Mitchem, 24, is charged with felonious assault, inducing panic and having a weapon under disability. His trial has been scheduled for Oct. 1.

        Mr. Washington told police he borrowed a gun from his cousin, Mario Ginyard, 19. Mr. Ginyard was indicted Thursday on three counts.
