A suspect has been taken into custody in relation to the killing of a man in Over-the-Rhine.
The incident happened around 10:22 p.m. on October 4. Multiple 911 calls alleging a dispute on E. 14th Street prompted Cincinnati police to respond.
The man has been identified as Lavontez Davis.
Who is Lavontez Davis?
Lavontez Davis is 24 years old. He was taken into custody on Saturday by the Fugitive Apprehension Squad and the Homicide Unit of the Cincinnati Police Department. He was taken into custody because of an outstanding murder warrant related to the victim’s demise.
Officers found a 48-year-old guy injured on the sidewalk when they arrived. The University of Cincinnati Medical Center received him after that. Sadly, the victim passed away from his wounds on October 8, and the Hamilton County Coroner’s Office determined that his death was the result of a homicide.
The unfortunate occurrence happened after the victim and his wife left the FC Cincinnati game on Wednesday night, according to the victim’s friends and police sources. While strolling along the 14th roadway close to Vine Street, they noticed a vehicle traveling on the one-way roadway in the incorrect direction. According to accounts, the woman driving the car got out and attacked the man, presumably in an effort to alert the driver.
The victim was choked and put in a headlock by a second man who allegedly joined the assault. Police from Cincinnati were called to the location right away.
Officers received the following information from the dispatcher: “Male patient, laying on the ground with unknown injuries… We will report that a man is unconscious and on the ground.”
Witnesses were able to provide more precise information on the woman who was involved in the argument, even if they could only describe the male suspect in general terms.
