According to WLWT reporter Sheree Paolello, police have named two suspects in this shooting, but Joe Mixon is not one of them.


FOX19 has obtained the 911 call from the reports of gunshots being fired outside the home of Joe Mixon in Anderson Township. The call was made from inside Mixon’s house.

According to TMZ, the person who made the call is Sean Pena, a professional trainer who has reportedly worked with NFL names like Antonio Brown. During the call, Pena says he was at “my athlete’s house.” He called after hearing gunshots being fired at a house next door.

Hamilton County police are conducting an investigation following reports of gunshots being fired outside the home of Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon late Monday night.

According to a report from FOX19, police entered the Anderson Township home of Mixon after responding to a call of shots being fired that left a juvenile injured. The juvenile was transported to the hospital with minor injuries. The nature and cause of the juvenile’s injuries have not been confirmed.

Police remained on the scene for several hours, placed an evidence marker, and even extended crime scene tape onto Mixon’s property, but it has since been removed, and police left the area without making an arrest pending further investigation.

Mike Dardis of WLWT spoke with Mixon’s sister, who said her brother was not involved in the shooting.

In an unrelated situation, Mixon had charges of aggravated menacing filed and later dropped against him in early February.
