WINTON HILLS, OH (FOX19) – A 62-year-old man faces several charges after Cincinnati police say he fired at four people, including a 1-year-old boy.
Thomas McCary was then shot by one of the victims, who has a permit to carry a concealed license, Cincinnati police said.
He is held without bond at the Hamilton County jail on four counts of felonious assault. He faces a judge at 9 a.m. Monday.
According to police, McCary argued with a woman on Holland Drive about 7:30 p.m. Sunday night.
During the dispute, her brother, Patrick Ewing, walked over to see what was going on.
That’s when, police say, McCary pulled out a .38-caliber handgun and fired three shots at Ewing.
Ewing was not hit, but he had a gun on him and holds a permit to carry a concealed weapon. He drew his gun and fired three shots, striking McCary in the leg.
McCary went into his house and re-emerged with another handgun. With a gun in each hand, he fired three shots in the direction of the woman he was arguing with, her 1-year-old son and a third man.
The victims retreated into their home to avoid being shot.
Seeing his relatives under attack, Ewing fired additional rounds at McCary to try to divert his attention.
