A 25-year-old died Monday night after being shot multiple times on the streets of downtown Cincinnati. 

Two men were reportedly arguing at the intersection of Garfield Place and Vine around 7 p.m. when shots were fired. Police said the victim was found on the ground in nearby Piatt Park.

The victim has been identified by police as Joshua Lamar Taylor. He was transported to University of Cincinnati Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.

The suspect is still at large and was last seen running northbound on Vine Street, according to Cincinnati Police Sgt. Christopher Taylor.

Sgt. Taylor said a shooting in this area of downtown does not happen often. He indicated that the suspect and victim most likely knew each other.

Police ask anyone with information about the homicide to call Crime Stoppers at 513-352-3040.
