A 33-year-old Ohio woman is dead after a double shooting in Riverside Wednesday morning, according to reports.

According to the Hamilton County Coroner’s Office, 33-year-old Sarah Westbrooks died in the shooting, which sent two people to the hospital.

The other victim suffered life-threatening injuries. Both were taken to UC Medical Center following the shooting.

It happened around 7:50 a.m. when officers responded to the 3200 block of River Road for a report of shots fired.
