( Avondale ) - Cincinnati Police were called to Carplin Place near Reading Road just before 2:30 Tuesday afternoon on reports of two people shot.

Investigators say one of the victims, identified as 21-year-old Antwon Ward (pictured), was found dead at the scene. A second victim was taken to UC Medical Center in critical condition.

There have been conflicting reports that the second victim also died from his injuries, that the two shooting victims shot each other, and there has also been talk of a third person being taken into custody. 

A written statement from the police department's Homicide Unit only describes Ward's death and the other victim being taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.
