One killed, 14 wounded in Ohio nightclub shooting

One person was killed and 14 others wounded early Sunday in a shooting involving at least two attackers at a packed nightclub in Cincinnati, Ohio, police reported.

“We are in the middle of a very horrific situation that occurred at the nightclub with multiple victims,” assistant police chief Paul Neudigate said, WLWT5 News reported.

He said hundreds of people were in the Cameo nightclub when the shooting broke out, causing many to flee the scene.

The Cincinnati Police Department said there were “15 gunshot victims, one deceased” and that its “homicide unit and all available resources are being utilized.”

It was not immediately clear where the shooter was but no one has been taken into custody, Sergeant Eric Franz told ABC News, describing the aftermath as a “large and complicated homicide scene.”

He said police were interviewing multiple witnesses to the shooting, which broke out at around 1 am (0500 GMT).

Captain Kimberly Williams told CNN there were at least two shooters.

“We are sure there was more than one, but we’re not sure if there was more than two at this point,” she said.

“It was a young crowd and we have had incidents in the past, but this is the worst by far.

By the time … the shots were fired, individuals ran outside, so there was not a lot of people inside the club. I believe there was a large crowd earlier this evening, but just a lot of chaos when the shots went off,” she said.
