DAYTON, Ohio (AP) -- At least three Ohio cities have reported their first homicides of 2013.

The medical examiner in Cleveland on Wednesday identified one victim as 42-year-old Nathan Brown of Cleveland. He was gunned down on the porch of a home about 3 a.m. Tuesday. No arrests have been made.

The first slaying in the city of Dayton also likely occurred in the early morning hours of New Year's Day. Police say they found 30-year-old Bradley Thompson dead of gunshot wounds in a home. Multiple shots were heard in the area, but there have been no arrests.

In Toledo, police said a 23-year-old woman was fatally stabbed during a melee in a bar early on New Year's Day. They said Christina Henderson died from a stab wound to the neck.
