WALNUT HILLS, OH (FOX19) -

A shooting in Walnut Hills has taken the life of a young man.

The shooting occurred around 11:30 a.m. at Curtis and St. James Street, near the CVS.

Police say when they arrived they found the victim, Jack Cody, III, suffering from a gunshot wound. He was taken to the hospital where he later died.

Near the crime scene, several people said the violent crime is getting out of control, especially with victims this young.

"I think it's tragic.  I think the youth need to stop killing each other and we just need to come together as a community," said Bridgit Thigpen, who commutes through Walnut Hills.

Her reaction was the same as many passing by the crime scene where Cody was gunned down.

"I feel sympathy for families, but it's no shock sometimes, you know?  Because it's seems like it's an everyday occurrence," added Walnut Hills resident Haili Giordano.

For one woman who knew Cody, she spoke highly of the young man he was.

"It's tearing me up inside because I knew the young guy. He was a very respectful, good, young guy," said Patience Fuller.

The crime scene has since been cleared, leaving neighbors with only a plea for the violence to stop.

"To have this youth die here where people shop and commute, it's a tragedy," added Thigpen.

"Their life is gone, and they could have done so many things with their life.  There's a lot of opportunities out here for young people, they just got to find them," said Joanie Griffith, who commutes through Walnut Hills.

"They need to stop the violence and quit killing each other," said Fuller.

Cincinnati Initiative to Reduce Violence (CIRV) officials say Cody was a recent graduate of the Life Skills Center vocational school.
