Joe Mixon’s Home Cordoned Off By Police Over Shooting Investigation

Police surrounded the home of former Oklahoma and current Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon after deputies responded to reports of shots fired in the area late Monday night, Fox 19 Now reported.

No arrests were made and the scene has since been cleared. Mixon’s involvement in the incident is still unknown. However, the running back’s sister, Shalonda Mixon, says that Mixon was not involved in the shooting of the juvenile, WLWT News 5 in Cincinnati reported. 


The shooting was reported around 8:30 p.m. in Anderson Township, which is about 13 miles southeast of downtown Cincinnati. The outlet reported that police confirmed a juvenile was taken to a hospital with “minor injuries.”

Crime scene tape was stretched across two houses, one of which was Mixon’s home, the outlet confirmed through court documents, and one piece of evidence was marked in the home’s yard while deputies were investigating the scene.

Deputies from Hamilton County Sheriff’s department were seen banging on Mixon’s door around 11:30 p.m. to identify themselves and were giving commands for the homeowner to come out.


At 12:15 a.m., police allowed a car to drive up the home’s driveway. Police were then seen entering Mixon’s home at around 1:40 a.m. At around 3:30 a.m., deputies were seen taking down the crime scene tape and began leaving the scene. They confirmed that one person was in the house, Fox 19 Now reported.

Mixon’s talent has never been disputed, but he has been involved in multiple off-field issues, dating back to his time at Oklahoma. In 2017, Mixon reached a civil settlement with a woman that he punched in the face as a recruit at Oklahoma. Mixon was suspended for the entire 2014 college season as a result of the incident. Also, in January, Mixon had an arrest warrant out for one count of aggravated menacing after he was accused of pointing a gun at a woman in Cincinnati. That warrant has since been dismissed.
