Today, Hamilton County Prosecutor Joseph T. Deters announced the indictment of Anthony McIntosh (DOB 02/12/00). McIntosh was indicted for one count Aggravated Murder (SF), two counts of Murder (SF), four counts of Felonious Assault (F2), and four counts of Tampering with Evidence (F3). If convicted on all charges, McIntosh faces the maximum possible sentence of life in prison.

On March 17th, 2022, McIntosh shot and killed Alias Phillips in the parking lot of the Oakley Target. Following a verbal altercation inside of Target, McIntosh exited the store and returned to his vehicle, where he waited until the victims exited the store. McIntosh then grabbed his gun and chased the victims down, firing multiple shots. Phillips, who legally possessed a firearm, returned fire in self- defense. Phillips was struck once in the back of the head and later died at the hospital.

McIntosh was also indicted for an unrelated incident that occurred at a BP gas station in District 4 in October of 2021. During this incident, McIntosh chased the victim while firing a gun. The victim was shot, but survived his injuries.

McIntosh is currently being held at the Hamilton County Justice Center on a $1,000,000 bond.

Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters commented, “It is a miracle no one else was hurt with bullets flying around a crowded parking lot in the middle of the day. It’s also very tragic that someone lost their life over something so senseless.

As serious violence creeps out of our urban core, more people recognize the destructive effect this has on quality of life issues. No one should be okay with gunfights in Oakley and Kenwood.

The sad reality is that the people that have to live in dangerous neighborhoods every day do not deserve to have to raise their children in that environment. I never want this to become common here in Hamilton County.”
