Bond set at $1 million for man charged in Hamilton fatal shooting

Bond was set Thursday for a man charged with a June fatal shooting in Hamilton.

Cameron Treitay Kidd Wilson, 21, of Harrison, was taken into custody last week at his Hamilton County residence and charged with murder and felonious assault for the slaying of Darrian K. Shamel on June 2.

Judge Jennifer McElfresh set Wilson’s bond at $1 million. He is scheduled to be back in court for a pre-trial hearing on on Jan. 14.

Officers were called to the 700 block of Charlton about about 12:15 a.m. on June 2 and found Shamel had been shot. Shamel, 22, was transported to Fort Hamilton Hospital, where he died.

The Butler County Coroner’s Office said Shamel died of gunshot wounds.

A woman placed a 911 call and said an intruder had shot her son.

“Someone just barged in and shot my son,” the caller said. “I need an ambulance right away.”

When the dispatcher asked if he was conscious, the woman answered, “he is still breathing. He is gasping.”

As the dispatcher gathered information for police and paramedics en route, the mother said while crying, “Darrian? Ma’am he is gone. He’s gone.”
