Teenagers were playing “dart wars” with Nerf-style guns when one of them was shot in the foot with a rifle as he attempted to run away. He was taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
“Approximately 11 rounds” were allegedly fired by “unknown suspect(s).” According to the report, the victim is a neighbor of Mixon’s.
Crime scene tape was seen around Mixon’s home and an evidence marker was placed in the yard, FOX 19 reported after Hamilton County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a call of shots fired around 8:30 p.m. ET.
Shalonda Mixon denied her brother’s involvement in the shooting earlier this week. No arrests have been made.
Just over a month ago, Mixon faced a misdemeanor charge of menacing over allegations he threatened and pointed a gun at a woman in Cincinnati, stemming from an alleged incident in January. Those charges were dismissed in early February.
