The Sheriff’s Office said the victim was pronounced deceased at the scene.
The suspected shooter, Demarkus Hedges, of Cincinnati, reportedly fled the scene in a vehicle.
Upon further investigation, the Sheriff’s Office said that Tucker, two 18-year-olds, a 17-year-old, and Hedges all hung out earlier in Cincinnati and Covington before returning to the home of an 18-year-old woman.
The witnesses reportedly told authorities that a bag of marijuana fell on the bedroom floor and Hedges "demanded that Tucker pick it up," but she refused. Hedges allegedly pulled out his handgun and fired one shot into Tucker’s head.
Hedges faces charges of murder, tampering with physical evidence, and unlawful transaction with a minor, according to the Sheriff’s Office. The Sheriff’s Office has asked for the public’s help in finding Hedges, who fled in a 2010 maroon Nissan Maxima.
