CINCINNATI (WXIX) - A man was killed in Elmwood Place Saturday morning, according to Hamilton County Sheriff Charmaine McGuffey.

McGuffey says that St. Bernard police were initially patroling Elmwood Place when they were called to the 5800 block of Vine Street around 1:30 a.m.

Officers then requested that the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigation Section report to the scene.

Once detectives arrived, they found Ross Hudson, 36, inside a Vine Street home with a single gunshot wound to the back of his head

It is unclear what led up to the shooting. Deputies have not stated if they have a suspect. The homicide unit is still investigating.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office tip line at 513-586-5533 or Crime-stoppers at 513-352-3040.

Kortney Richardson shares a child with Hudson.

She says having to explain to their two-year-old son that his father is dead is what she dreads the most.

“I don’t know how I’m going to explain it,” Richardson wonders. “You know, it’s hard because it’s his dad. Everyone needs a dad. I don’t know how I’m going to explain it to his daughter. They are grieving so bad right now.”
