  • The scene outside the cameo Club where a gunman has killed one person and wounded 14

A Cincinnati Police officer tells occupants of a vehicle to turn back, at a roadblock near the scene of the mass shooting.

"Many of the witnesses fled, but everyone that we can identify is being interviewed", Neudigate said.

"We are the region's Level One trauma center, so we prepare and train for situations like this and hope they never happen", Martin said.

Police at this time do not believe the shooting was terrorism-related.

According to initial repots, an altercation between specific individuals or groups began earlier in the day and eventually came to a head while at Cameo Night Club in the city's east end area.

Someone was shot in the foot there on New Year's Day, and a shooting victim was found in the parking lot in September, WLWT said.

Earlier Sunday morning, Cincinnati Assistant Police Chief Paul Neudigate told the affiliate that several victims have life-threatening injuries.

"This is going to be a long process for us to solve this crime - crimes, plural - and heal as a community", Cranley added.


For now, just one shooter is wanted for the 2:20 a.m. attack at Cameo nightclub that killed a 27-year-old man, according to police who earlier said there were multiple attackers. Some drove themselves to hospitals, and others were taken by ambulance.

"It was a young crowd and we have had incidents in the past, but this is the worst by far", Captain Kimberly Williams, the district's police commander, told CNN.

It was unclear how many shooters were involved.

A police auto blocks access to the scene of a mass shooting at the Cameo Nightlife club in Cincinnati, Ohio, US. As of Sunday morning, at least one person was in critical condition. "It (the club) has had some challenges in the past", Neudigate said.

Ohio Gov. John Kasich said he's instructed administration officials to offer assistance to investigators. Along with police, the ATF and the coroner's office are on scene investigating the shooting.

Two victims have been treated and released from Bethesda North Hospital, with two more in stable condition at nearby Christ Hospital. "Our prayers are with the victims and families of all of those involved".

CNN reports that Cameo allows admission to anyone over the age of 18 on Friday nights.
