Cincinnati Police searching for suspect in murder at Walmart in Westwood

(CIncinnati, OH) - The suspect hasn't been arrested yet, but Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters has already announced the indictment of Josiah Hassell for the murder of Jamonte Brown outside of the Walmart store on Ferguson Road in Westwood on November 27, 2021.

The 26-year-old Hassell was indicted on one count of aggravated murder, two counts of murder, and two counts of felonious assault

It was on Saturday afternoon of last Thanksgiving weekend when Deters says the victim Jamonte Brown was waiting for a ride outside of the store, when Hassell allegedly shot Brown in the back of the head. Hassell then allegedly returned to the vehicle and sped off.

Anyone with information about Hassell is asked to contact the Cincinnati Police Department Homicide Unit at 513-352-3542.

Deters says Brown "was executed, in broad daylight, in a crowded parking lot. In all my years as a prosecutor, it is hard to think of another case as brazen as this. The type of person who can casually walk up behind an unsuspecting victim and put a bullet in their head is someone who should never be on the streets again."

You can see a video of the shooting which was played during Prosecutor Deters' news conference below.
