CINCINNATI (AP) - Cincinnati police say a 15-year-old boy was fatally shot in midafternoon in a neighborhood northeast of downtown, and they’re searching for a suspect.

Police say Nathaniel Scott Jr. died at a hospital after the Tuesday shooting in the Walnut Hills neighborhood, a few blocks from where another shooting last month killed one teenager and injured two others outside a party.

Police Capt. Maris Herold tells WCPO-TV (https://bit.ly/1LE80gb ) that Tuesday’s shooting occurred an area that is usually “pretty calm.”

The station says police found two guns at a playground nearby. There was no immediate word on any suspects or possible motives for the shooting.
