Street near Findlay Market reopens after a man was shot, police say

A stretch of Findlay Street near the Findlay Market has reopened after a man was shot Sunday afternoon.

According to Cincinnati Police Lt. John Cunningham, the man was shot in the leg on the 1800 block of Elm Street in Over-the-Rhine sometime before 3 p.m. As a result, police closed Findlay Street between Elm Street and Central Parkway, but it has since reopened and the scene is clear.

The extent of the man’s injuries is unknown and no other information is available at this time, Cunningham added.

Claire Greweling, who works at Gia and the Blooms florist nearby, said her friend who works at the market heard three bangs. She and her colleagues initially assumed it was construction noise. When they realized it was gunshots, they fled to another location.

“I still feel safe, but it’s disturbing,” Greweling said.

Officers were spotted with long guns entering a nearby church where the suspect was believed to have fled, she said.

Joe Bailey was selling his original artwork and buttons at the market when he heard about the incident. As a longtime member of the Findlay Market community, Bailey also hates the narrative that the market is dangerous.

“I don’t like the stigma of ‘it’s not safe,’” he said.

The Enquirer will continue to update this story.
