Man found shot to death in North Fairmount



The Cincinnati Enquirer

A 26-year-old man became the city's 16th homicide victim Saturday.

Police said they got a call at 12:55 p.m. Saturday that a body was lying at the side of a building in the 3200 block of Bowling Green Court in North Fairmount.

Police said Dante Guilford, no address available, had been shot, and his body was found on the sidewalk. Guilford had been there between six and 12 hours before being found.

Meanwhile, an Avondale teen was questioned Friday in connection with the Thursday slaying of Michael Owens, 23, the city's 15th homicide victim, in Avondale. The 16-year-old, whose name is not being disclosed because of his age, was let go and not charged. He will undergo more questioning, Cincinnati Police said.

Owens was fatally shot just after 2 a.m. Thursday near Burnet and Rockdale avenues. It happened hours after Cincinnati City Council received a new report about Burnet Avenue, specifically the 3400 block.

The Cincinnati Police Department's homicide unit is investigating both cases. Anyone with information is asked to call the Criminal Investigations Section at 352-3542 or Crime Stoppers at 352-3040. Callers may remain anonymous and receive compensation.
