Citizens For A Better Norwood

Tuesday, June 19, 2007

1900 block of Williams Ave. scene of 5:00 p.m. shooting

Fortunately, the 19 year-old victim, Anthony Lomboy, is expected to survive. Andrew Niehaus was later apprehended by the West Chester police and is expected to be charged with felonious assault. The NPD responded to a 911 call by the victim's mother. In Norwood, that means they might have gotten there in a couple of minutes, maybe even less. With such a quick arrest, it sounds like some great police work.

6/20/07 noon UPDATE: The Enquirer reports the shooting was the result of Andrew Niehaus’ botched home invasion. Obviously armed for the break-in, when he was surprised by the residents inside, he shot the 19-year-old. How many years can we hope this horrific crime is worth behind bars for Niehaus, assuming he’s the perp and convicted? Our hearts go out to Anthony Lomboy and his family.
