Colerain Twp. police chief makes bold statements about fatal shooting at party

Despite hearing what happened at 9917 Capstan Drive, Nicole Bracey values the years she spent living just a few blocks away.

“I love Colerain,” she said. “I love this area. It’s a great school district.”

Like others, Bracey was alarmed when detectives in Colerain Township said someone shot and killed Autum Garrett and injured eight others during what was initially called a gender-reveal party last month at the home on Capstan Drive.

Police now say there was no pending birth to celebrate.

On Monday, Colerain Police Chief Mark Denney issued a statement saying, “Investigators have found multiple connections between individuals attending the party and three different drug circles, which are now being investigated concurrently.”

Denney continued, “We expect a very long and thorough investigation that will result in multiple arrests… In no way has this investigation hit a dead-end or gone ‘cold.’ New information is learned daily and interviews continue

“Investigators keep running into the same people in every lead, and finding drug trafficking,” Police Chief Mark Denney told The Enquirer. “But there are no specific details that we can put out at this time.” 

The July 8 shooting on Capstan Drive was initially described to

A shooting at a gender reveal party that left a woman dead and eight people injured was targeted, Colerain Police said.

“All information points to the fact that this was a planned, targeted incident that was in no way random,” Colerain police said in a statement released Tuesday.

The posters are in memory of Jonah Barley, Raekwon Manigault and
Johnny Johnson. 

Special messages and prayers also went out to the families affected. 

“It’s the healing process and instead of sitting on your hands
and just crying and whatever, if we can turn things into positive
programs and that’s what we’re trying to do by working together also.”
