Killed, 15 Injured in Cincinnati Nightclub Shooting

CINCINNATI, Oh (CBSN) - A gunfight broke out inside a crowded Cincinnati nightclub early Sunday, leaving one man dead and 15 others wounded after a dispute among several patrons escalated into a shootout, authorities say.

Police say the shooting occurred at Cameo Night Club just after 2 a.m. Police do not have any suspects at this time but they are interviewing witnesses.

Assistant Police Chief Paul Neudigate tweeted that there was only one reported shooter, however, police were investigating whether others were involved.

The investigation is ongoing, City Mayor John Cranley said, adding that the probe and the community's healing will be a "long process".

Chief Eliot Isaac said investigators believe more than one shooter was involved.

Four police officers were working as security in the club's vehicle park and some tried unsuccessfully to revive the man who died.

Extra security was called to the DJ booth just before shots rang out, noted WLWT5. He also noted that the club itself "has a history of gun violence", and that two shootings happened there in 2015.

Isaac said he feels confident police will find those responsible.




The motive is unclear, but police have ruled out any relation to terrorism. Four police officers were working off-duty security details in the club parking lot, but he emphasized the club provides its own security inside.

The shooting took place around 1am local time (1pm, Singapore time), when hundreds of people were inside the Cameo Night Club.

Captain Kimberly Williams, the district's police commander, said there had been "multiple problems" at the club before. It was the result of an apparent argument that may have started earlier in the day turned violent, authorities said.

"They do wand individuals and pat them down", Isaac said about the nightclub, but he said several guns had been brought to the bar.

And of the 15 wounded, two were listed in critical condition on Sunday, police said.

Neudigate said this shooting was one of the largest shooting cases that he has worked in his 20 plus years with the department. "Numerous witnesses fled, but everyone that we can identify is being interviewed".

On certain nights the club admits people age 18 and above.

Ohio Governor John Kasich said on Twitter that he was "saddened to learn about the shooting" and offered the state's assistance.
