Last night, law enforcement officers arrested Hyde Park Kroger shooter, Kevion Howze, after it was discovered that he was in the possession of two firearms and drugs. Howze, whose bond was reduced under the recent Supreme Court Case Dubose v. McGuffey, was released from the Hamilton County Justice Center on 05/09/22 after he posted his reduced bond. At arraignment this morning, Judge Yates set bond on the new charges at $80,000 at 10% ($8,000).
Howze was previously indicted by a Hamilton County Grand Jury for Attempted Murder, Discharge of a Firearm, and Felonious Assault after he chased after the victim and fired multiple shots at him in the parking lot of a Hyde Park Kroger, striking the victim once. Howze’s bond was originally set at $500,000 at 10%, but was reduced to $100,000 at 10% plus EMU (electronic monitoring).
Prosecutor Joe Deters commented: "This violent offender was release from jail because the Supreme Court of Ohio ruled courts cannot consider public safety when setting monetary bail. The state legislature has the opportunity today to rectify that. This is why we need HJR2 to pass TODAY to give our judges the ability to keep our communities safe." ... See MoreSee Less
