CINCINNATI -- A man who was originally arrested on unrelated robbery charges is the third person to be indicted in the death of a 19-year-old Avondale man.

The Hamilton County Grand Jury indicted Michael Davis, 19, Friday for murder stemming from the Jan. 7 shooting death of Curron Jones.

On the night of the shooting, Avondale resident Cynthia Brandon said she heard at least four gunshots outside her Hallwood Place home at about 11:30 a.m. When she peeked out a window, she saw a man later identified as Jones lying on the ground in an apartment lot with another man trying to help him up.

The second man was carrying a gun in his hand, she said.

“I was inside getting ready to get dinner prepared, and I all I heard was pow, pow, pow, pow,” said Brandon, who normally walks to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center for work. “It sounded like a gun battle.”
