CINCINNATI — A 15-year-old girl and a 19-year-old man were killed, and another person was injured in a triple-shooting in Bond Hill early Tuesday evening, Cincinnati police said in a press release.

All three were shot on Joyce Lane near East Seymour Avenue in an area that straddles the line between Roselawn and Bond Hill, investigators said.

Following the shooting, 15-year-old Nonaisha Jones and 19-year-old Logan Lawson were driven to Montgomery Road, in Norwood. According to investigators, when police discovered them, Jones was pronounced dead at the scene and Lawson was taken to the hospital where he later died.

Another person with a gunshot wound was found near 5000 Reading Road in Bond Hill, after being transported from the Joyce Lane scene. That person was taken to the hospital in critical condition, CPD said.

Police have not provided further information on a potential suspect, nor have they released the identities of the people who were shot.

According to Cincinnati Public Schools, Jones was a Woodward High School student.

“While the investigation is still underway, we recognize this is a tragic event and our concern and sympathy is with the family, friends and school community. Counselors are on-site at the school to provide continued support for students and staff,” a spokesperson for the district said in a press release.
