HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, KY (FOX19) -

The family of young attorney allegedly murdered by his girlfriend has released a statement on his death.

Ryan Poston, 29, was killed Friday, Oct. 12 in Highland Heights. His girlfriend, Shayna Hubers, is being held in the Campbell County Detention Center on a $2 million bond, charged with his murder.

"Ryan's family is devastated by this loss. Ryan was as bright as he was kind and as principled as he was caring. His passing is an unspeakable hardship to so many people. We ask that all of Ryan's family and friends as well as our community to keep Ryan and those who loved him in their thoughts and prayers. We want to make it clear that Ryan was trying to end this relationship; he was trying to move on with his life. Tragically, his life was taken from him. Justice must now be served," read a statement from the Poston and Carter families.

Highland Heights Police Department responded to a report of a person shot on Meadow Lane in Highland Heights at around 9 p.m. Friday. Upon arriving at the scene investigators discovered Poston dead as a result of multiple gunshot wounds.

A preliminary investigation revealed that Hubers had allegedly shot her boyfriend multiple times with a handgun. The suspect was found at the scene and taken into custody.

The motive of the shooting is unknown, and the incident remains under investigation.

Poston was a practicing attorney in Cincinnati.
