The suspect was rushed to the hospital with “possible life-threatening injuries” and died on Friday.

On Friday afternoon, the Cincinnati Enquirer reported police were trying to identify the deceased male, whom they described as having “tattoos that say, ‘Est. 2001,’ ‘Olivia T.’ and ‘Edward’ all in a cursive font.”
