DAYTON, Ohio (AP) -- At least two Ohio cities have reported their first homicides of 2013.
Cleveland police reported that a man was gunned down on the porch of home on the city's east side at about 3 a.m. Tuesday. His name hasn't been released, and no arrests have been made.
The first slaying in the city of Dayton also likely occurred in the early morning hours of New Year's Day. Police say they found 30-year-old Bradley Thompson dead of gunshot wounds in a home. Multiple shots were heard in the area, but there have been no arrests.
In Columbus, police say a 36-year-old man was hospitalized in critical condition after being shot at least four times during a confrontation early Wednesday.
All the investigations are continuing.
