CINCINNATI – The Cincinnati Police Department released new footage Tuesday morning offering details of a suspect who hit and seriously injured a motorcyclist in the West End on September 27.
Mical Landrum, 35, was shot near the intersection of Ezzard Charles Drive and Winchell Avenue last week. Cincinnati police said the driver took off after the crash.
Landrum, a father of two, is still fighting for his life in the hospital.
Security camera footage shows the suspect parking his car along a sidewalk on Linn Street – exiting onto the sidewalk – before police say he drove off.
Employees at the West End branch of the Cincinnati and Hamilton County Public Library said the footage was allegedly retrieved from their security camera, which they turned over to police.
The suspect wears a dark hat, striped shirt, dark pants and white athletic shoes. Police said he was driving a charcoal gray Toyota Camry – a model from the late 2000s to 2012. Officers say the vehicle is likely damaged on the front right side.
Cincinnati Police said multiple cameras were recording in the area, but a city camera near the intersection was not working at the time of the crash.
DaJuanda Landrum-Tate is still pleading for answers more than a week after her son was hit by a car on his motorcycle.
She hopes these new footage from the security footage will offer clues about the suspect.
“Your face, everything has been shown,” said Landrum-Tate. “Someone knows who you are and I want the police to apprehend you ASAP. Or I want you to surrender.”
Landrum-Tate said she spoke to Cincinnati Police about the library’s camera, but she is frustrated not knowing they released the footage.
“They didn’t tell me anything,” Landrum-Tate said. “I found out by looking at the news.”
Beyond justice, Landrum-Tate asks the community for prayers for his son.
“God has his arms around them and we want to keep asking for prayers,” Landrum-Tate said. “And we have to keep praying. We want to keep the faith that miracles happen.”
WCPO has contacted all members of the Cincinnati City Council Law and Public Safety Committee to learn more about the faulty camera at the crash scene.
Call Crime Stoppers at 513-352-3040 with any information that could help Landrum’s family get justice.
