Monroe police is working with local and federal law enforcement partners in their investigation on why shots were fired twice at a residence in the Monroe Crossings neighborhood.

While no one was injured in either incident, the shooters are believed to have been targeting a specific individual who lives there, police said.

Anyone with any information about the shootings are asked to call police at 513-539-9234.


Monroe police hope to have some answers for residents in the Monroe Crossings neighborhood following a house being shot at twice over the weekend.

Officer Joshua King said a team of investigators is working to find out why someone would shoot at a house in the 400 block of Brandon Drive twice. He said the shots were fired at the house about 10:41 p.m. Saturday and at 1:15 a.m. today.

“It’s a very nice neighborhood and it’s very uncommon for this to happen there or anywhere else in the city,” King said.

King will hold a “town hall” meeting at 6:30 p.m. today in the cul-de-sac of Brandon Drive to answer questions and hopefully get some more information about the shootings.

“I’m very confident we’ll have something to pass on to the residents,” he said.
