SWAT team moves in after fight between women
CINCINNATI (Angela Ingram) -- The SWAT team moved in Wednesday night, August 27th, 2014, after shots were fired out of a fight between two groups of women.
Fist fights and shots fired between two groups of women was what brought the Cincinnati SWAT team to Evanston August 27. The police captain in charge of the neighborhood said there were so many calls from neighbors and residents who were outraged about the incident that police decided to send a message. That message was sent by using the SWAT team.
Officers had their guns drawn and aimed at a home on Hewitt Avenue near Bonaparte. They were looking for Kiesha Kemper for firing shots at people after a fight. Kemper did surrender with her hands up and officers arrested her.
Police said earlier in the day they received numerous calls about a fight and gunfire between 6-7 women ages 25 to 40-years-old. Later on another incident happened. Police said Kemper was in a car with two men and drove past the rival group of women firing shots.
Capt. Jeff Butler of the Cincinnati police said, "It started off with a fight that occurred. During the fight the firearm was produced. Later in the day the losers of the fight, for lack of a better word, they returned to the scene from a vehicle, fired several shots again at the other participants in it. So we had two incidents in which the firearm was used. Based on the heightened emotions of people involved, the seriousness of the event and also the wishes of the community we served a search warrant tonight."
Police told Local 12 they were looking for other people involved in the incidents including the two men inside the car with Kemper. Police said they were also looking for the weapon or weapons that were used.
