shootings. 17:35:32 i am glad that they have somebody, at least that they are making progress with it, you just don't want to see that go on and nothing is done. 41those shootings happened after business hours and only security officers were inside great american tower. investigators say herald had the gun used in the shootings.. but he not charged with the shootings themsleves. shakira lewis works at in between tavern, a bar right next to the tower. this arrest is a big relief. 17:32:28 we didn't want to stay open past 6 o'clock because of that. it lowered our business and it was bad. 37herald is no stranger to police. he is also suspected in what police call a "wild west" style shootout on reading road last spring. a stray bullet hit a cincinnati metro bus. herald was sentenced to spend a total of 6 years in prison.17:31:38 it makes me feel a lot more safe to know that, that person is off the street or at least they got a lead and it's going to be over. 48 police will hold a formal news conference tomorrow morning at 11:30 to discuss the investigation. reporting live ashley zilka 9 on your side
