Cops: Dad charged in fatal shooting of driver who hit son

CINCINNATI (AP) — Police say the father of a 4-year-old boy hit by a car in Cincinnati has been arrested on charges of murder and felonious assault in the driver’s slaying.

A Cincinnati police statement says Jamall Killings turned himself in to authorities Tuesday. Court records don’t show an attorney for him.

Police also are seeking a second suspect in the shooting.

Killings’ son was struck March 24. His injuries weren’t life-threatening.

The driver, 44-year-old Jamie Urton, was shot repeatedly when he got out of his car and apparently became involved in a confrontation. Urton died at a hospital.

Police last week released 911 calls in which a man apparently tells the boy, in part, “The dude that hit you with the car, I killed him.” It wasn’t immediately clear who was speaking.
