For the year, the number of homicides in Cincinnati is down almost twenty percent from last year but a recent spike in gun violence has claimed another life. Police are investigating a murder in Over the Rhine on Liberty at Walnut. The victim is a woman in her twenties but at this point no other information has been released.

This murder is close to where 36 year old Sherrard Dunlap was gunned down early Sunday morning and in the same neighborhood where 21 year old Thomas Maul was shot Friday night. Over the Rhine was also the scene for the murder Wednesday night of the shooting of 57 year old James Able on Green Street. 

The four murders in six days do not appear to be connected in any way. Anyone with information on the shootings is asked to call Crimestoppers at 352-3040.
