Man killed in Avondale parking lot



The Cincinnati Enquirer

AVONDALE - An argument between two men in an Avondale parking lot Tuesday ended when one of them chased the other into a car and shot him to death, police say.

Carlos Manuel, 25, suffered multiple gunshot wounds and died after trying to escape his assailant by climbing into the car of an unsuspecting motorist. A small child also was in the car, but neither the child nor the driver were hurt.

Police said Manuel argued minutes before the shooting with another man in the parking lot of the Cold & Quick store at Forest Avenue and Vine Street.

Homicide detectives have issued a murder warrant for Eric Levett, a man they say frequents Forest and Burnet avenues.
